Native American Commission
The Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission was created through a joint effort of members of the Los Angeles American Indian community, Los Angeles City, and Los Angeles County governments. The Indian Commission was officially established by the County of Los Angeles on June 25, 1976.
The primary purpose of the Commission is to increase the acquisition and application of funding resources to the socioeconomic problems of American Indians in Los Angeles City and County without duplication of any service or activity provided by any other County officer or department.
The Board is established to administer public/private funds, particularly those funds that have Indian self-governance requirements. The Board does not complete for funding with any American Indian community base non-profit organization providing services in the County of Los Angeles.
