Native American AAs carry the message

International NAIAA Convention held in Las Vegas

This past Sept. 9-12, the National/International Native American Indian AA Convention (NAIAA) gathered 500 old friends and newcomers to celebrate its 20th year. The convention featured a mix of AA and Al-Anon meetings, and included a flag ceremony, a powwow and talking circles.

Delegates from Area 63 and Area 42, as well as the past Pacific Regional Trustee, attended. Also present was the current Pacific Regional Trustee--the first Native American to serve on the General Service Board. These trusted servants hosted a special AA service workshop to discuss topics such as what to do when a Native American member goes to a meeting in a remote community and no one else comes. Those attending the convention enjoyed the fellowship typical of AA.
