The Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs acts as the convener and liaison for all issues related to American Indian issues in the State of Colorado. As such, we work in a variety of fields, including but certainly not limited to human services, natural resources, public health and environment, local affairs, transportation, education, health care and policy, corrections, public safety, Colorado history, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), data collection, economic development, and State legislation affecting Native Americans. CCIA has an active Health and Wellness Committee. Past committees have included: Health and Wellness, Education, Economic Development, and Reinterment. Through these committees, CCIA facilitates collaboration between partners to advocate for the success of Native peoples throughout Colorado.
