Happy Holidays and last minute gift ideas



As we wind down one year and head into the next, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the holiday season and to wish health, happiness and peace to you and your families.

While many of our holiday traditions have evolved over the centuries, the calendar cycle has remained constant.  Each year, December 21 marks the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year.  We note it not because we like darkness and cold, but because it marks a turning point, the start of the journey toward light, warmth and new life.

For forty-three years, NARF has also followed the light, the light toward justice.  When Supreme Court cases go against us or governmental policies ignore or trample Native rights, it is easy to feel we are in the winter of justice, mired in darkness and cold. Somehow we remain optimistic that  the light is ahead and that unwavering determination will prevail.  Thank you for sharing that optimism and walking with us toward the light!

Are you looking for a last minute gift idea?  Make a donation to NARF in your loved one's name and help Defend the rights of Native Americans now!

We thank you for your time, consideration and for the support you have given to NARF this past year that has helped us achieve so much for Native Americans. As we look ahead to the New Year we hope that you will pledge once again to help NARF to continue to stand firm for justice for Native Americans in 2014.
