Robust Indigenes is an evening 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 open mic format for anyone willing to share an AIC story.  Stories are digitally recorded and will aid in the in the development of the first retrospective exhibit for the American Indian Center, slated for Fall 2018.
