Division of Indian Work

The Division of Indian Work (DIW) serves the social needs of urban American Indians while honoring cultural tradition. This is accomplished through advocacy, education, counseling and leadership development in a variety of ways:

  • By teaching positive parenting and promoting healthy families
  • By offering reduced-rent apartments to young parents who cannot find affordable housing
  • By working with individuals to end family violence
  • By operating the only culturally-sensitive food shelf in the west metro serving the urban American Indian community.
  • By offering youth mentoring, tutoring and a wide range of learning opportunities, from language to teen pregnancy prevention
  • By providing supportive homes for American Indian foster children

MIGIZI works in three intersecting areas to improve the future for the community: The Native Academy working in math, science, technology and post-secondary education planning; First Person Productions working on new media production and working with tribes to develop their telecom infrastructure; and educational equity work that will help to empower communities as they reclaim a primary role in the education of their children.

Minneapolis American Indian Center

Incorporated as nonprofit in 1974, the Minneapolis American Indian Center has a rich history as one of the first urban American Indian Centers in the country providing services otherwise often unavailable for urban American Indians. The Minneapolis American Indian Center was initially formed by community members, and continues its roots today with majority American Indian leadership and staffing.

The Minneapolis American Indian Center is focused on serving a large and tribally diverse urban American Indian population, numbering well over 35,000 in the eleven County Minneapolis-St. Paul metro areas. Our mission is lived through programs that are guided by strong Native values that include preserving and supporting cultural traditions through the arts, and intergeneration programs promoting healthy lifestyles.
