NCAI Embassy gets $50K boost from Famous Dave

Dave Anderson, the founder of the "Famous Dave's" barbecue restaurant chain and the former head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, donated $50,000 in stock to the Embassy of Tribal Nations.

Anderson said he was happy to support the National Congress of American Indians as it seeks to create a home in Washington, D.C. "This generous contribution puts us another step closer in realizing our initial goal of $2 million to purchase a building in Washington that will house the embassy," NCAI President Joe Garcia said in a statement.

The embassy will house offices for NCAI and other Indian organizations.
