Celebrating and supporting American Indian cultural traditions in Minneapolis

The Minneapolis American Indian Center is a community center in the heart of the American Indian community of Minneapolis. We provide educational and social services to more than 10,000 members of the community annually. We preserve and support American Indian cultural traditions through art, youth, and inter-generational programs.
