The Los Angeles City-County Native American Indian Commission was created in 1976. The primary purpose of the commission is to increase the acquisition and application of federal funding resources for addressing the socioeconomic problems of American Indians in Los Angeles city and county. In performing this function, the commission represents the interests and concerns of American Indians of all tribal and cultural backgrounds, religious convictions, and social circumstances (Ord. 11409 § 1 (part), 1976: Ord. 4099 Art. 113 § 21011, 1942.).
On February 23, 1993 the Board of Supervisors approved the creation of the Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission Self-Governance Board to meet all the requirements of American Indian community self-governance and self-determination. This Board is established to administer public/private funds, particularly those funds that have Indian self-governance requirements. This Board will not compete for funding with any non-profit American Indian community based organization providing services in the County of Los Angeles.
