The Native American Community Board (NACB), founded more than two decades ago by a concerned and well-informed group of Native Americans living on or near the Yankton Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota, works to protect the health and human rights of Indigenous Peoples pertinent to our communities through cultural preservation, education, coalition building, community organizing, reproductive justice, environmental justice, and natural resource protection while working toward safe communities for women and children at the local, national, and international level.
The NACB provides direct services to Native women and families and activities range from community education to preserve our culture, campaigns to end violence against Indigenous women, coalition building to fight for our reproductive justice, and environmental justice.
We have recently launched a public awareness campaign to make Plan B Emergency Contraceptive available over-the-counter at Indian Health Service (IHS); all women have the legal right to access this contraceptive over-the-counter, but IHS routinely denies Native women this right. Other services to the community include a food pantry, domestic violence shelter, advocacy for survivors of domestic violence, transitional housing, a radio station, and both a women’s and men’s community education group.
