Historical Note

The American Indian Press Association was a news-gathering organization devoted to increasing the participation of Native Americans in the creation and consumption of newspapers. Notable staff members included Rose Robinson, Charles Trimble, and Richard LaCourse. The AIPA was in operation from 1970 until 1976.

The AIPA records were held by the Native American Education Service (NAES) until 2008. Established in Chicago in 1974, NAES College aimed to improve the leadership of Native communities and to ensure that tribal knowledge, traditions and values play a major role in the higher education of Native students. Before closing its doors in 2007, NAES College offered a single degree, a Bachelor's of Arts in General Studies with an emphasis in Public Policy, and tribal knowledge, community service, community development and leadership.
