Celebrating Native American Awareness with a Gathering of Nations
Throughout our history, American Indian and Alaska Native peoples have been an integral part of the American character. Against the odds, America's first peoples have endured, and they remain a vital cultural, political, social, and moral presence.
Tribal America has brought to this great country certain values and ideas that have become ingrained in the American spirit: the knowledge that humans can thrive and prosper without destroying the natural environment; the understanding that people from very different backgrounds, cultures, religions, and traditions can come together to build a great country; and the awareness that diversity can be a source of strength rather than division.
The Mission of the Nations Network is to provide all associates with educational opportunities, and skills development to ensure cultural competence. To accomplish this, the Nations Network collaborates with managers and associates to ensure diversity is communicated throughout the organization.
