National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition
The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, incorporated in June 2012 under the laws of the Navajo Nation. NABS was conceptualized at a grassroots level at a national symposium in 2011 which included leaders of the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The Native American Rights Fund was our fiscal sponsor from 2012-2015. Today, we are a staff of 2 and a board of 9 with over 100 coalition members composed of Native and Non-Native individuals and organizations committed to boarding school healing.
