The Object of this Society shall be to assist and encourage the preservation of records and historic sites associated with our native and immigrant American Ancestors, to cherish the memory of those native and immigrant Americans who waged war and/or committed other acts of hostility one toward the other in defense of their people’s freedom, liberty and ideals, to strengthen fellowship and to encourage cooperation between descendants of native and immigrant Americans, to foster in a spirit of patriotism, the support and enforcement of all treaties and laws made and agreed upon between the State and Federal governments and the several tribes, bands and nations of Native Americans, to publish a lineage book of the names and ancestral data of members of the Society, and original materials related to this aspect of American History.

Cher Sesma, Governor General

“Honor other above yourselves.”
Romans 12:10

Walking Bear

Membership, Scholarship, and support
of Native American Schools


I am so honored to serve as your Governor General. We have a lot of work to accomplish in a short time. As you know, our Society was forced to cancel our Annual Council due to the hurricane in South Carolina. Therefore, I will only be serving an eighteen (18) month term. My project will be Membership, Scholarship and support of Native American Schools. My scripture is “Honor other above yourselves.” Romans 12:10. My theme is Walking Bear. Bears are prominent in Native American Folklore. They are a symbol of strength and wisdom and are often associated with healing and medicine. And being from California what better theme?

I am thrilled to tell you about the Society’s plans. We have a new classification of membership. If you are a direct descendant of a Native American, you will be recognized with a certificate and the opportunity to purchase our new insignia teepee pin that can be worn on your official ribbon.       Read more >>
