BIG ELK NATIVE AMERICAN CENTER
Our mission is to promote equity & access for the Native American community in the Omaha, Nebraska area by providing advocacy & support.
We were hit by sickness & family emergencies of our board & volunteers, then the covid crisis further hit us and our new Native non-profit organization. We welcome any donations which are tax deductible for our determined rise from this delay to launching a successful native grassroots organization.
