Providing excellent services that help meet the needs of the American Indian community within a foundation of cultural values
The Minneapolis American Indian Center has a rich history as one of the oldest and largest urban Native American Centers in the country providing services that otherwise were unavailable for urban American Indians. Our programs are grounded in Native American cultural values and those programs include:
Chemical Health Program—provides referrals for services, educational and recovery support groups, and youth and family retreats and family strengthening sessions.
Ginew/Golden Eagles—a year-round after school and summer program targeted to low-income, at-risk Native American youth with a curriculum designed to help youth develop resiliency and self esteem.
Indian Child Welfare Program—recognized as a nationally as a model for Indian Child Welfare, the program provides Court Monitors and Tribal Liaisons for Native American children and families involved in the child protection system.
Indigenous Women’s Life Net—a federally funded program for Native Indian Women and their children impacted by domestic and sexual violence. The program addresses homelessness and other issues caused by family violence.
Seniors Program—offers culturally appropriate health and wellness, transportation, social and recreational activities and services to American Indian elders in Hennepin County.
Two Rivers Gallery—is in the process of re-opening to showcase local American Indian artists, and provide workspace for artists’ use.
Workforce Investment Program—a federally funding program that helps unemployed Native American adults overcome barriers to employment, provides education and job placement in 70 Minnesota counties in the metro and statewide.
