Amer­i­can Indi­an Com­mu­ni­ty House (AICH) is a com­mu­ni­ty-based orga­ni­za­tion with a mis­sion to improve and pro­mote the well-being of the Amer­i­can Indi­an Com­mu­ni­ty and to increase the vis­i­bil­i­ty of Amer­i­can Indi­an cul­tures in an urban set­ting. Their space on Gov­er­nors Island is used to present exhi­bi­tions, per­for­mances, and oth­er cul­tur­al and edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams, as well as to host artists in res­i­dence. This sum­mer, vis­it Fri­day-Sun­day from 11am-5pm to meet the artists in res­i­dence and view their works in progress.

AICH was found­ed in 1969 by Native Amer­i­can vol­un­teers as a com­mu­ni­ty-based orga­ni­za­tion, man­dat­ed to improve the sta­tus of Native Amer­i­cans, and to fos­ter inter-cul­tur­al under­stand­ing. AICH mem­ber­ship is cur­rent­ly com­posed of Native Amer­i­cans from 72 dif­fer­ent tribes. Native Amer­i­can migra­tion between urban cen­ters and reser­va­tions demon­strates the inter-relat­ed­ness of all Native Amer­i­cans, and from this real­i­ty emerges the recog­ni­tion that our issues and con­cerns are tru­ly shared.
