History - Native American Advancement Foundation

Susan Warmack was born in the Gu Vo District and grew up living on the reservation. In 2010, her eleven-year-old son David, recognizing a need for literacy in his village, challenged his mother to help him organize a program to assist the community. With the involvement and support of the people of Gu Vo, and with the support and counsel of Dr. Tim Finan from The University of Arizona, David and Susan incorporated the Native American Advancement Foundation as a nonprofit organization in April of 2011 and obtained 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status on September 19, 2011.
