The National Tribal Air Association (NTAA) was established in 2002 following a resolution from the National Congress of American Indians and a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The NTAA serves to advocate and advance tribal interests in developing air quality policy at all levels of government. Other goals of the NTAA include promoting and developing tribal air management programs and studies, advancing the recognition of tribal sovereignty, and facilitating consultation with all tribal governments based on tribal structures and policies.
