ABOUT US

Started in 2002, the Native American Veterans Association began as a mutual fraternal non-profit organization 501 (C)(19), built around the American military culture with a rich history and legacy that dates back to and around the creation of our great nation. We are a Native American based organization that stretches its helping hand out to all tribal and non-tribal veterans and their families.

NAVA is also an advocate for veterans and their families. Our services include assisting veterans and dependents when applying for Federal, State, and County benefits and all other rights to which they are entitled in the most expedient manner possible.

The official colors of NAVA are black, red, purple and gold. The black represents our POW/MIAs and those who still have not returned to us. The red is a very strong color to veterans and represents the blood of those shed in battle. The purple represents the Purple Heart, and the gold respresents Honor in Service.
