Although the group was initially established to address Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, it rapidly grows into a powerful organization.
NARP organizes protests and fundraisers for various Indigenous causes, and its newsletter provides a platform for Indigenous peoples across Canada to oppose racism, sexism, and colonialism.
The NARP newsletter publishes articles on Indigenous current affairs in Canada and the US. Its reading list covers themes of Black Power, Red Power, and socialism.
NARP has cross-border reach and engagement with other militant organizations. For instance, NARP becoming the official distributor of the Black Panther Newsletter.
