The ABM Card is the proof of your NAIC Tribal Org. Basic Level Membership. It is NAIC opinion that a $100.00 donation is a relatively insignificant sacrifice compared to what both Federally and Non Federally Recognized, Tribal Organizations and or American Native People have endured to enable you, and all other races to benefit from their Sacrifices to worship their indigenous cultural practices.

You have constitutional rights which are listed in the legal section of this web site. Please read and understand them as law enforcement in most cases will be unfamiliar with them. Laws vary from state to state and it is important for you to understand your legal right to participate in the sacraments of the NAIC.

NAIC does not have a legal fund to defend you but does have all of the documentation to support you in your earnest desire to participate as the spirit dictates so long as it does not infringe upon the rights of others and is in accordance with the NAIC Tribal Org. mission statement and Authorized Basic Membership Rules and Ministry Scope of Practice.
