The Vision

To be the trusted Native-owned national bank committed to meeting your financial needs, as well as the financial needs of your business and your nation.

In 2001, twenty Tribal nations and Alaska Native Corporations set out with a dream to create a national bank to serve all Native people, communities, governments and enterprises across the country and established Native American Bank, N.A.

We recognize that among the many issues facing Native Americans, the absence of access to financial capital and services has been a significant obstacle toward the realization of self-sufficiency and financial freedom across Indian Country.

The Mission

Through collaboration, provide access to financial services for Alaska Native and Native American communities creating economic independence, development and sustainability.

At Native American Bank, our primary mission is the assist Native American and Alaskan Native individuals, enterprises and governments to reach their goals by providing affordable and flexible banking and financial services.

To accomplish this, we concentrate on pooling Indian economic resources to increase Indian economic independence by fostering a climate of self-determination in investment, job creation and sustainable economic growth.

The Future

As the only Native American-owned nationwide financial institution, the future holds great promise for the organization as we pursue our mission to serve Native America.

We continually work to enhance shareholder value as a result of being a well-managed, profitable organization.

We focus on properly underwritten lending activities to enhance economic development and produce employment on reservations and in other Native American communities.

We strive for increased capital generated from earnings and ongoing capital campaigns to provide support for the growth necessary to pursue our mission.
