2 To sponsor, promote and conduct programs to research on subjects related to American Indians.
3 To sponsor, promote and provide social services and other forms of assistance to American Indians who are in need.
4 To locate public and private agencies which can provide health, education, welfare, employment and other services to Native American Indian people in the state of Tennessee, and to advise and assist Native American Indian people in obtaining and utilizing such services.
5 To assist Native American Indians and persons of Native American Indian descent in learning of and obtaining the benefits of those programs, services, rights and privileges to which they and their Native American Indian tribes are or may be entitled under the laws and treaties of the United States of America.
