Minneapolis, MN 55404
The American Indian Movement Interpretive Center holds a legacy of millions of historical records, culture captured on media, radio archives, photographs and the testimony of living elders who want the story of the American Indian Movement told. This permanent collection of the modern history of American Indians will be identified, collected, organized and preserved for the Minnesota public, especially our children. Document, records, media, photographs, posters, art and objects will be available and on display. Academic and other researchers will have access to original charter filings, nonprofit Articles of Incorporation, AIM Patrol jackets, minutes of the earliest AIM organizing meetings, photographs of victims of police beatings, and audio interviews with historic figures who are now deceased. AIM-founded organizations will be asked to consider sharing their historical records with the Interpretive Center. The records will yield an expanded history of the work of organizations that were envisioned by AIM, and took their own paths of development and service to the community.
The Minneapolis American Indian Center (MAIC) is one of the oldest urban Indian Centers in the country. MAIC preserves and supports cultural traditions through the arts, youth and intergenerational programs. Programs Include: Ginew/Golden Eagles Program, Indigenous Women's Life Net, Indian Child Welfare Program (ICWA), Senior Citizens Programs, Two Rivers Gallery, Workforce Investment Act Program.
Community Space also available for rent.
