2nd Annual International Native American Responsible Fatherhood Day

June 14, 2014 What is It?
International Native American Responsible Fatherhood (INARF) Day is a special day to honor and celebrate the importance of fatherhood and the great contributions fathers bring to strengthening families and communities.


Fathers are the greatest untapped resource to help solve issues that many Native American families and communities face.
There is an immediate need to bring fathers back to their innate leadership role as fathers. As established by our forefathers, the family is the heart of Native American cultures.
There is no other work more important than fatherhood and motherhood.
