American Indian Community House Monthly Social

FRI, Feb 22, 2019
6–8 pm

Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater

The Whitney and the American Indian Community House (AICH) co-host AICH’s monthly Social. Join us for an evening of drum singing, dancing in traditional regalia, conversation, sharing of stories, and community-building over refreshments. 

AICH has hosted Socials as an integral community-building event since its founding in 1969. Similar to a pow wow but smaller, the Social is an extension of a long-standing lifeway among Indigenous people that brings relations and friends from different Tribal Nations together. The AICH Socials solidify bonds among Indigenous people living in the New York City area who are often far from their original homelands but can also welcome new friendships with guests from diverse communities. In this spirit, AICH has partnered with many organizations and institutions throughout its history to make a truly inclusive experience.

This event is free with registration.
