MNAA is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors elected by the Indian Communities residing in the ten-county area of the Southern Piedmont referred to as The Metrolina Area
(Cabarrus, Catawba, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Stanly, and Union) which defines the organization's service area. There are approximately fourteen thousand Native Americans living in the Metrolina Area. This population is comprised of Native Americans from many different tribes across the nation, not just North Carolina and South Carolina consequently, MNAA is considered an "Inter-Tribal Organization". As Charlotte is one of the largest banking center in the United States, we have a diverse array of Native American culture from around the country. With such a diversity we experience and learn many different tribal histories, customs and traditions. The result of this cross-cultural sharing is, the further preservation of the American Indian heritage.. In order to share the diverse Native American cultures with the community, MNAA has several events per year, including but not limited to Pow Wow, Golf Tournament, Adult,senior and kids parties, yard sales and cookouts. Everyone is invited to come and experience our history and culture.
