All books and cassettes have been further reviewed for cultural sensitivity and accuracy. The goals of the North American Native Authors Catalog include:
1) The promotion of Native American literature.
2) A Raised awareness of Native issues and perspectives.
3) The Empowerment of Native individuals and communities through literature.
4) Mentoring the next generation of Native writers.
5) To acknowledge and further understand the importance of literature in modern day Native American society.
