Native Hoop, a 501c3 Non-Profit organization, was founded in 2009 and officially established as a non-profit entity in 2018, initially operating under the auspices of the Native American Cultural Association of Oregon. As of 2024, we have proudly transitioned into an independent non-profit based in South Dakota.
Our decision to embark on this independent journey stems from our aspiration to expand our scope beyond the boundaries of Native Hoop Magazine. Listening to the voices of our community, we are committed to diversifying our initiatives to address the evolving needs we have identified.
Native Hoop is diligently striving to broaden its horizons and cultivate additional opportunities. We encourage you to stay tuned and revisit our website regularly, where we will unveil our latest programs and initiatives. Your continued support fuels our commitment to innovation and growth. Thank you for joining us on this journey of progress and empowerment.
At our essence, we are committed to showcasing our people in a positive and uplifting manner. Native Hoop Magazine remains steadfast as the cornerstone of our efforts to support and celebrate the rich diversity of the Native/First Nations community. We are unwavering in our dedication to excellence, ensuring that the magazine continues to thrive and evolve, always striving to be the very best it can be. Rest assured, Native Hoop Magazine will forever remain an integral part of Native Hoop's identity and mission.
In a world where mainstream representation often falls short, we strive to fill the void by showcasing every facet of Native American/First Nations culture with reverence for tradition and ceremony, while maintaining the integrity of our heritage.
Native Hoop Magazine transcends thematic limitations. Our overarching objective is to embrace and celebrate the rich tapestry of tribes across the United States and Canada. Recognizing the intrinsic diversity among tribes, we champion inclusivity, firmly believing that every tribe deserves a voice. By uniting all tribes, we amplify our collective strength and highlight the unique traditions, beliefs, and customs that define each community.
With a global audience, we aim to underscore the resilience and greatness of Indigenous peoples, affirming our presence and fortitude.
At its essence, Native Hoop embodies unity and resilience, serving as a beacon of strength and solidarity for Indigenous communities on Turtle Island.
