Continuing Our Cultures...For Our Children's Sake


Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to bring into being, our Vision of a strong Indian community that has the ultimate goal of providing for our children, a strong social, political, cultural and economic base upon which to further the development of our Indian communites that reaches hundreds or more years into the future. Our Mission and Vision is about Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow. It is about taking the values of Yesterday, applying those values Today, and using those values to benefit our children and grandchildren Tomorrow.
The most important thing we can do is to take care of our cultures...for our children's sake. It is up to us to care for and continue what sustained our ancestors in their daily lives.
Our children are depending on us to give to them their cultural birthrights...the songs, dances, histories, spirituality and way of life that will enrich their lives which they in turn will pass onto their children.
Our children are also depending on us to give to them the opportunities to grow and to develop their potentials among the many other people that make up this global world today. Our children need guidance and all of the education and tools that are necessary for their survival today, just as they needed such things for their survival in the past. It is up to us to provide for them a solid base upon which to build our future Indian communities.
                                                     Who We Are
TAIDA is an organization that consists of concerned Indian people from Tennessee and other states whose main concern is to help facilitate the development of the Tennessee Indian community, to help form a strong and united Tennessee Indian community that reaches all across the Americas.
