The Alliance Of Native Americans Seeking Interaction
OVER 60,000 NATIVES CALL THE MID-SOUTH HOME. WE ARE HERE TO BE THE VOICE.
The Tennessee Alliance of Native Americans Seeking Interaction became a reality on 1 September 2017 after community members became perpetually frustrated at the lack of information & social services available to Enrolled Federally & State Recognized Native Americans living in Tennessee. Heavily influenced by leaders of the American Indian Movement, TANASI's main purpose is to connect neighboring tribal members with the resources available for our people. TANASI's secondary goals are to be a central focal point for our state wide community as a form of uncensored (but respectable) communication regarding IHS, Veterans Affairs, Archaeology, Available Employment, Cultural Events, and yes - even entertainment. TANASI was Sanctioned by the National American Indian Movement as the recognized Chapter of Tennessee & Western North Carolina on 18 December 2018.
