Our Story

The Indigenous Institute of the Americas is a 501 (C) 3 nonprofit Intertribal organization founded by Elders Gregory Gomez, Eddie Sandoval, and Dr. Cathy Guiterrez-Gomez. With the guidance of amazing knowledge keepers, our founders, advisors, and ambassadors, we strive to preserve the Traditional knowledge of American Indian people from the North Pole to the South Pole. Our organization is an all-volunteer powerhouse founded in the 1980s in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas. We provide education, consultation, and much more throughout the year. Our highlight of the year is the IIAC event held the first weekend in April at the Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum. It is an opportunity for immersion in the knowledge from our past and our contributions to contemporary life.
