The Minneapolis American Indian Center is undergoing a historic renovation and expansion so we can continue providing vital services to the local Native community into the future. Since it opened in 1975, the center has been a staple of the American Indian Cultural Corridor on East Franklin Avenue.

We’ve made significant progress in our All Roads Capital Campaign, raising $29.25 million so far, and we are asking generous donors like you to help us reach our $32.5 million goal. Every donation helps us maintain essential resources to the urban Native community and move toward a brighter future.

Upon its reopening to the community on May 1, 2024, the completed center will feature a blend of tradition and newly expanded features, positioning us as a central hub for Native food, art, health programs, youth activities, social services, and commerce. Our culturally tailored youth programming transitioned under the Boys and Girls Club Native Services umbrella, with the addition of the Best Buy Teen Tech Center. The Gatherings Cafe will once again offer Indigenous cuisine to the public through dine-in, takeout, and catering services. Additionally, a new artists’ studio will provide space for Indigenous artists to create their work, complementing the existing Two Rivers Art Gallery. New coworking and meeting spaces will also be available to the community for short-term use.

The historic expansion project been years in the making. Upon completion, the Minneapolis American Indian Center will be one of the premier urban American Indian centers in the country, continuing to serve the community for generations to come.
