About Us – Arrowhead’s Tribal Program
Arrowhead’s Tribal Program
Arrowhead’s Tribal Program was created in 1987 as the Program for Sovereign Indian Nations, with the assistance of Native American attorneys and tribal administrators. Our goal: to help the Native American community with their specialized insurance needs by offering insurance coverage that recognizes tribal sovereignty as established by the Constitution.
Thirty years later we continue our original steadfast mission: To provide insurance that meets the unique cultural, financial and legal requirements of tribal nations.
WHY CHOOSE ARROWHEAD’S TRIBAL PROGRAM

Multiple tribes helped us create Arrowhead’s Tribal Program. That’s how we know your insurance needs.
YOU TALKED, WE LISTENED
Our program was created through personal visits and interviews with many tribal leaders, councils and governments to gain an understanding of Native America’s special needs and requirements. Having this first-hand experience is why we have supported and championed many initiatives over the years that maintain, promote and secure tribal sovereignty. This includes establishing national seminars and symposiums to educate people on products, legal progress and government decisions that affect Native Americans.
