To provide Opportunities for networking and support of American Indian business people in California.  To Provide a mentor's environment for those individuals beginning new endeavors and establish a vehicle for education, networking and growth opportunities.

To Obtain Our Mission Our Objectives Are:

1. Preserving the competitive free enterprise system by creating:

a. a better understanding and appreciation of the importance of American Indian businesses, and a concern for their problems

b. preventing controversies which are detrimental to  expansion and growth of the American Indian business community

2.  Promoting business and community growth and development by:

a.  promoting economic programs designed to strengthen and expand the income potential of American Indian business within the State of California;

b.  promoting programs of a civic, social and cultural nature which are designed to increase the functional and aesthetic values of the American Indian community; and

c.  discovering and correcting abuses which prevents the promotion of business expansion and community growth for California’s Indian reservations.

 3. Establishing a cultural, economic and social center to foster the growth and development of the American Indian communities in California as well as such other communities which have an interest in the activities of the Chamber.

One of the main vehicles for attaining our mission is through our monthly meetings.  

The Chamber is a statewide organization with three Chapters- Southern California, San Diego County and Northern California - and we hold meetings throughout the state each month.

We also hold three major statewide events each year - our June Recognition Luncheon & MEDweek event, Our Annual EXPO with Trade Show and our major fundraiser - the Native American Heritage Month Luncheon.
