Native American Community
Homes to Weatherize

The Native American Advancement Corporation (NAAC) recognizes the need to provide weatherization assistance to Native Americans by taking into account the States plan of 5% served each grant year.
Management and staff have made a concerted effort to support and encourage service delivery through the established weatherization office within the tribal territory of Cumberland County, New Jersey.
Attending the tribes meetings and events have proven to be very beneficial. Phone calls and online materials are okay for dispensing information, but we know they leave something lacking when we really want to develop and sustain a high-quality relationship.
The local tribe initially expressed an urgent need for the State for to address the lack of weatherization needs being met of their people.
NAAC's most astounding need is to expand weatherization services to Native Americans through the successful system of weatherization projects, with an emphasis on serving those living in tribal territories. Nanticoke Lenni Lenape Headquarters gives an assortment of effort to the tribal community and additionally operates their own social administration programs, incorporating culture of social understanding, to expand their abilities in living up to expectations with tribal families and individual Native Americans.
Our first undertaking was is to investigate the reasons why services are not arriving at low-income Native Americans in conjunction with service for the general low-income population.

"BE IT ENACTED by the Senate and house of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That all non citizen Indians born within the territorial limits of the United States be, and they are hereby, declared to be citizens of the United States: Provided That the granting of such citizenship shall not in any manner impair or otherwise affect the right of any Indian to tribal or other property."
Approved, June 2, 1924. June 2, 1924. [H. R. 6355.] [Public, No. 175.]
The First Illegals?
"The First Illegals!  Unbelievable is all we can say when we describe this forgotten history fact!      "Act of June 2, 1924, Public Law 68-175, 43 STAT 253, which authorized the Secretary of the Interior to issue certificates of citizenship to Indians." Congress Granted Citizenship to All Native Americans Born in the U.S. (1)"
"Native Americans have long struggled to retain their culture. Until 1924, Native Americans were not citizens of the United States. Many Native Americans had, and still have, separate nations within the U.S. on designated reservation land. But on June 2, 1924, Congress granted citizenship to all Native Americans born in the U.S. Yet even after the Indian Citizenship Act, some Native Americans weren't allowed to vote because the right to vote was governed by state law. Until 1957, some states barred Native Americans from voting. At the time of the Indian Citizenship Act, an act called the Dawes Severalty Act shaped U.S. Indian policy. Since 1887, the government had encouraged Native Americans to become more like mainstream America. Hoping to turn Indians into farmers, the federal government gave out tribal lands to individuals in 160-acre parcels. Unclaimed or "surplus" land was sold, and the money was used to establish Indian schools. In them, Native American children learned reading, writing, and social habits of mainstream America. By 1932, the sale of unclaimed land and allotted land resulted in the loss of two-thirds of the 138 million acres Native Americans had held prior to the Act. A 1928 study known as the Meriam Report assessed the problems of Native Americans. The report revealed to the government that its policies had oppressed Native Americans and destroyed their culture and society. The people suffered from poverty, exploitation and discrimination. This study spurred the passage of the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act. This Act returned some of the surplus land to Native Americans and urged tribes to engage in active self-government. The U.S. government invested in the development of health care, education and community structure. Quality of life on Indian lands improved. Today some Native Americans run successful businesses, while others still live in poverty. " (2)
Are you aware that we are still in company of those who lived through this period?  Are you aware that we are still in this process of reorganization?

You are Talented and Creative

Do you realize that you have many talents that you probably do not remember?  Well, all of us have creativity and all we need to do is to channel in on those old ideas and "brush them off" to fit them into our everyday life! 

We are obsessed with "PHOTO'S", let’s face it.  Pictures bring back memories, show us where we have come from, and reflect our interest today.
Although we are all individual, we are similar.  Like the days of the week, there are only 7, and 365 days in 12 months!  That is the same concept of pictures.  There are thousands of folks just like us in the world. We have similar interest but the uniqueness of it all, we see things differently! 
This is where you can earn a living on what you already do, take pictures!  Your pictures are in high demand for those who do not have access to your point of view, but really need what you see.
Personally, in my circle, I see many that have really beautiful pictures that are posted on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, and Twitter.  They are truly amazing!  I am sure that the folks in the stock photo world would see the same as I.

More Results are Needed!
So far, the results are staggering!  The new generation is still faced with the same educational issues and the problem is not the Native Community!
Thanks to the “Learning Style Quiz” taken by so many, we have resulted in the conclusions outlined by countless research.
The quiz asked 20 questions in reference to data and research gathered by studies dating back to the 1950’s of actual observations, interviews and Native American schools and communities.  The quiz is open to all cultural backgrounds and therefore, provides a comparison to the different types of learning results.  The more points scored determines the learning style of many Native Americans and is included in years of research.  The highest possible score is 200. 
So far, 70% of test takers are of Native American communities, 20% at least 2 or more grandparents of Native communities and 10% of non-Native communities.  Even with this ratio, the total scores for all questions were in the high 180’s.  The 10% non-Native results were under 50!
The statement below from: The Learning Styles of Native American Students and Implications for Classroom Practice Melanie Price, Michael Kallam, and John Love Southeastern Oklahoma State University must be addressed further.
”It is apparent that many teachers do not have an understanding of the degree to which culture affects learning. Many teachers are not able to identify the learning style differences and to employ culturally responsive techniques to address the needs of diverse populations. Often teachers view differences in approach to learning as problems inherent in the students. They may be noticed as oppositional and defiant, inattentive, and under-motivated (Kallam, Hoernicke, & Coser, 1994). In order to help students learn, teachers need to adapt their teaching to support a variety of learning styles (St. Charles & Costantino, 2000).”
We are still conducting the test and ask that you please participate!
