The American Indian Center (AIC) was established in 1953 to help Native families cope with the transition from reservation to urban life following the selective termination of tribal status and the Indian relocation program of the 1950s. AIC strives to be the primary cultural and community resource for more than sixty-five thousand Native Americans in the Chicago metropolitan area, which is home to the third-largest urban Native American population, representing more than 125 tribal nations.

Established 1953, Chicago, USA
