Native American Bank

The Native American Bancorporation Co.

The Native American Bancorporation serves as the holding company for Native American Bank, N.A. and is a Community Development Institution (CDI) whose purpose is to promote economic development in areas that are underserved by traditional financial institutions.

Native American Bank, N.A

Chartered as a national community development focused bank, Native American Bank is also a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). We are committed to being a self-sustaining CDFI and are the only national American Indian owned community development bank in the country. Native American Bank supports the communities that we service and we received an “outstanding” on the most recent Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) exam.

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.

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 to 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.

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.

Native American Bank is committed to promoting a healthy environment to help our communities that we serve. Ensuring that a broad mix of individuals with a variety of ideas, viewpoints, background and experiences play an impactful role and is critical to the success of Native American Bank and our clients.

Native American Bank understands that in order to fully accomplish our mission and values, we must leverage the diverse backgrounds, skills, knowledge and perspectives of our clients, Board of Directors, vendors and employees. We aim to foster a culture for clients and employees where all feel welcome, included, empowered and valued. This includes attracting and retaining a diverse workforce and encouraging our team to promote diversity, equity and inclusion across all internal and external relationships and services.
