Native American Cemetery / Burial Service

The Indian Burial Assistance Project
The mission of the Indian Burial Assis
tance Project is to work with Native American families so that they might secure dignified, affordable, and culturally appropriate burial items and services. Native people have, all too often, been financially unable to have dignified caskets; necessitating the use of a "county" casket which is cheaply made and affords no sense of dignity for either the deceased or the family members
