Vision & Mission


Our vision is that tribal nations, tribal communities and Indigenous people are happy, healthy and prosperous and that traditional ways of life are honored, valued and respected.


The NM Indian Affairs Department is committed to be a resource by:

  • Advocating for tribal interests at state and federal levels through policy and legislative work;
  • Supporting tribes with access to resources, technical assistance and funding opportunities;
  • Connecting tribes with the executive branch, other tribes and with the tools and resources they need to be self-governing and self-sufficient.
