Native American Churches on Proposed Changes to Rules for the Religious Use of Bird Feathers


I am Natalie Landreth, a senior attorney for the Native American Rights Fund. I’m speaking today on behalf of the National Council of Native American Churches (National Council or NCNAC), which consists of the Native American Church of North America, the Native American Church of Oklahoma, the Native American Church of South Dakota, and the Azee’ Bee Nahagha of Dine Nation. Collectively, these groups and their member organizations represent hundreds of member chapters, and the vast majority of NAC members throughout the United States and Canada. The Native American Church is the name chosen in the early 1900s for the peyote religion—a traditional inter-tribal religion that dates back to pre-Columbian Texas.
