NAHC Mission Statement:
The mission of the Native American Heritage Club (NAHC) is to promote cultural awareness and diversity across the yard, while educating the Brigade about the history and current events of indigenous cultures and communities. This organization welcomes people of all backgrounds, regardless of tribal affiliation. We encourage professional development through cultural immersion and developing networks with people and organizations on and off the Yard. We proudly represent our diverse cultures and the United States Naval Academy, as well as the core values of the United States Navy and Marine Corps.
