Become an Independent Branch of the Native American Church
You can assist in NAC’s vision of providing safe environments for indigenous earth based healing spiritual ceremonies to thrive. NAC believes that the essence of all our earthly relatives are Great Spirit’s creative masterpieces.
We believe that to “Unearth the Creators Spirit, in Our Hearts and Heritage, for all of our Relations” we must focus on the traits of forgiveness, humility, honor, respect, charity, gratitude and faith.
Benefits of Being Blessed with a Independent Branch of NAC:
o 1) Gives you legal standing which will allow you to successfully overcome illegal prosecutions for utilizing mother earths plants and herbs as your Native American Church Sacraments and/or any other indigenous American Native ceremony
o 2) Gives your Church and Church grounds the same Constitutional freedoms and protections as any other legally recognized churches are presently receiving including Synagogues, Chapels, Monasteries, Wineries and Temples.
o 3) Gives your NAC independent branch the rights and freedoms that any other legally recognized church receives. This includes no financial or membership disclosure to any government agency and being legally acknowledged as a church.
o 4) Qualifies you to provide tax exemptions to financial contributors to your NAC independent branch.
o 5) Having the option of being recognized as an incorporated church in the State / Province where you worship so that you can receive exemptions from paying sales tax on purchases for specific church use.
o 6) Gives you legal protection from unjust local zoning laws, Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA).
o 7) Provide possible sanctuary for persons that are being unjustly sought for deportation or denied political asylum.
Note: Contributions for NAC Independent Branches do not qualify you to have us provide legal counsel in the event of governmental or legal challenges. Our Attorneys and Founders provide the basis of an educational campaign to alert or inform governing bodies of the unique characteristics of the rights and protections of Independent Branches and their participants through an online knowledge-base and references to court precedents. These are your rights, but you may have to defend them by providing your own attorney. We do not and cannot offer this service.
