Ya’at’eeh! A warm welcome from the National Indian Council on Aging, Inc. (NICOA)We are pleased to launch The Tribal Footprints Elder Resource Directory – an online tool to search for resources and services for Native Elders in and beyond Indian Country. We deeply care about accurately reflecting each community’s Elder listings. This is a formidable undertaking considering the complexity of Indian Country, so please be patient with us as we grow and develop the website.We also extend a big ‘thank you’ to the 50 inaugural Tribes who have joined us to date! Our Elder friendly website features:
- An interactive search listing of 566 Tribal area resources (currently 50 and growing)
- Localized listings of critical health and social services and resources for American Indian/Alaska Native Elders
- Links to address specific Elders needs, categorized by tribe name, region and community service type
- Free and easy access at any time for anyone with a smart phone or computer device
- Link and coordinate services with the Aging Network within and beyond the boundaries of Indian Country
Please join us!
Have your Tribe, Nation, Band or Pueblo Elder services and resource information available so our Elders can remain in their own homes and communities as they age.
We invite you to appeal to your Tribal Leader to sign the Release Agreement so that your community can also have your own featured page of Elder services and resources on the Tribal Footprints website. By signing this agreement they will help us build this invaluable resource for Elders, caregivers, and Aging Network Providers.\r\n\r\nIf a listing is missing or there is a new service in your area that is not yet listed, please reach out to us through our contact page or call us. Thank you.
NICOA is a non-profit organization founded by the National Tribal Chairman’s Association in 1976 and advocates for improved comprehensive health, social services and economic wellbeing for American Indian and Alaska Native Elders.
