Robust Indigenes: AIC Stories and Epiphanes

Please join us for our first Robust Indigenes event hosted at our new home in Albany Park!

This will be part three of a six-event series of stories that articulate the vitality of the American Indian Center toward providing space and programs that resulted in a continuum of cultural practice and contributed to the development of identity for four generations of Native Americans in Chicago.

We will have 3 featured storytellers plus an an open mic format for anyone willing to share an AIC story. We are asking all storytellers to bring along a tangible item (e.g. photograph or something produced at the AIC, etc.) that will enhance your AIC story. Your item will then be digitally scanned or photographed and become eligible for entrance into the AIC Archives collection and to the development of the first retrospective exhibit for the American Indian Center, slated for Fall 2018.

Our featured Storytellers for this event will be: Louis Delgado (Oneida) Dorene Wiese (White Earth Ojibwe) Pamela Silas (Menominee/Oneida)

However everyone is welcomed to bring a story!

Part IV will be held on May 19th
