Who We Are?
We are an independent, full-service, Native American owned-operated public relations agency serving tribal and no-tribal organizations, non-profits, community groups, businesses and government organizations. A mult-talented firm, we specialize in serving as a liaison between American Indian and non-American Indian owned organizations and agencies. Through public relations, marketing, advertising and issue advocacy, we can tailor your message to effectively reach and resonate with the unique culture of the American Indian and Alaskan Native (AIAN) community.
What's in Our Name?
Naqmayam is the Luiseño word for communicating “Listen to Me.”
We assert the “Sovereignty First “ approach. At NaqCom, we operate in a team environment, employing the most appropriate tools to effectively communicate our clients’ messages, promote their objectives and implement their media programs among Native Americans. As members of tribal communities, we know how critical it is to have appropriate public relations strategies if Native Americans as tribal nations are to succeed in maintaining sovereignty and self-determination. We strive to take on clients who promote or enhance tribal sovereignty.
Our Keys to Success Are:
Our extensive ties to Native American communities allow us to draw upon relationships based on integrity, trust and respect for Native American culture and tribal sovereignty
NaqCom’s collective background of culture, customs and traditions, and combined professional, political, academic and cultural expertise is second to none. Along with an award-winning, diverse staff, we have access to a cadre of media specialists and consultants in various fields — copywriting, production, art direction, account management and illustration, to name a few. With a highly respected American Indian expert as principal, our experienced staff understands the currency of integrity in Indian Country, as well as tribal diversity, historical context and contemporary issues unique to both the American Indian community and U.S. audiences.
We are much more than just public relations. Our ability to offer the personal attention and roll-up-your-sleeves attitude of a small, independent firm yet produce the high-impact results associated with a large agency makes us a unique powerhouse in the communication arena. Our track record of consistently producing meaningful results through creativity, strategic thinking and passion means an excellent return on investment for our clients.
