Land Back NAICCO
We cannot express enough how grateful we are to everyone who has stepped up and helped bring Land Back NAICCO this far. Because of all you wonderful people out there, we are now on the cusp of reaching our $250,000 goal. Meaning, as of the end of August 2023, Land Back NAICCO has accrued an astonishing $244,370!
To continue writing this new, successful, healing chapter in modern-day Native American history here in Ohio, please continue to stand with us in 2023 as we aspire to reach our goal of $250,000.
Having come this far, now nearing our goal of $250,000, we are starting to seriously look at properties in the Central Ohio area. We are hoping to identify and purchase land for NAICCO Nation in the foreseeable future—either in 2023 or 2024. Notably, our Land Back NAICCO campaign will continue to be advanced through two distinct phases:
PHASE #1 will focus on purchasing the land itself (20 acres or more).
PHASE #2 will focus on the development of that land.

Our Native community here at NAICCO has told us on countless occasions that we need a space in Ohio that we can call ours… where we can gather and be ourselves; thus, to honor our past, thrive in the present, and walk proudly into the future. Needless to say, land will always be an essential piece to sustaining our legacy as Native People…
