American Indian Center Community,
We will be completing the purchase of our new facility next week and plan to move in the last week of March. The new location is in Albany Part at the corner of Ainslie and Kimball. Our move will bring us to a location that fits our needs as a Center and is close to both the Brown Line and the Lawrence and Kimball bus lines. We will continue to have Powwows, retain our culture, dinners, AIC history and be the gathering place for all Native Nations in Chicago.
This year we are celebrating our 64th birthday as the American Indian Center of Chicago and moving to our new location assures that we will preserve our title as the oldest urban Indian Center in the Nation. We will retain our history and start new stories as we open a new chapter for the American Indian Center of Chicago.
As with any move the first few weeks will be hectic with moving, setting up offices, facilities and communications. We will have a Grand Opening and Community Town Hall meeting in early May so keep checking the AIC website and Facebook page. Thank you for your patience during our move and we look forward to seeing all of you in our new building to continue the tradition started 64 years ago.
