Article: King recounts stories from the early days at AIC Gallery


Daniel King recounts AIC stories from the early days at AIC Gallery
August 2018

Daniel King shares stories of the early days in and around the American Indian Center (AIC). This is taken from the Robust Indigenes series. This series of storytelling events articulates the vitality of the AIC toward providing space and programs that resulted in cultural connection and retention and contributed to the development of identity for four generations of Native Americans in Chicago.  These oral histories will continue to contribute to the AIC Archives collection and to the development of the retrospective exhibit series for the AIC.
