American Indian Society (AIS)
of Washington, DC

Christmas 2006Over the years, Indian people of many different tribes have moved into the metropolitan area of Washington, D.C. With them they brought their ancestral traditions. Always they looked for companionship with other people of similar history and interests.

In 1966, Indians living in the Washington area decided to form a group that would fill the need for a central organization representing as many tribes as possible. They formally organized in August 1966 as the American Indian Society of Washington, D.C. (AIS), a non-profit organization with a constitution and elected officers. The young group of less than 20 original members has grown to nearly 300 members from over 50 different tribal groups ranging from Maine to California and from Alaska to Florida. Some of these memberships are family memberships, so the actual number of people that are members is much larger. Business meetings are held monthly, and a monthly newsletter keeps everyone up-to-date on Society activities.
