Welcome to the National Tribal Air Association!

As the NTAA Chairman, I would like to welcome you to NTAA's official website. My name is Wilfred J. Nabahe, and as Director of the Colorado River Indian Tribes’ Environmental Protection Office, I represent the Tribes located within the boundaries of EPA’s Region 9 on the NTAA's Executive Committee. As NTAA's current Chairman, I work to ensure that NTAA helps to empower Tribes to protect and enhance the air that we all breathe.

The National Tribal Air Association was founded in 2002 with a grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation with a mission to advance air quality management policies and programs, consistent with the needs, interests, and unique legal status of American Indian Tribes and Alaska Natives. Tribes are important partners with federal, state and local agencies to protect ambient air quality, indoor air quality and mitigate climate change.

NTAA's website is a great platform to find NTAA's policy analysis on air quality policies that impact Tribes, important air quality resources for Tribes, the latest air quality news and more. Welcome to NTAA!
