We're Still Here! 


Urban Indian Heritage Society

At Urban Indian Heritage Society (UIHS), our mission is to research, document, and preserve the history and culture of Misclassified, disenfranchised American Indian and their lineal descendants who are victims of genocide, while being excluded from federally protected activities.

UIHS is committed to promoting civic engagement and advocating for both Civil and Human rights for these communities.


Through our work, we aim to raise awareness of the historical and ongoing injustices faced by these communities, and to empower them to reclaim their identities, cultures, and ancestral lands.


UIHS believes that the preservation of these historically rich communities is essential to understanding the true history of the United States of America, and to creating a more equitable and just society for all.

We are dedicated to the curation, preservation, and maintenance of ancestral lands, using sustainable practices that honor the sacred relationship between indigenous communities in North America and the natural world.


UIHS recognizes that the protection of The North American Ancestral land is crucial to the survival of the authentic North American Indigenous cultures and the well-being of the planet as a whole.

As we carry out our mission, we remain committed to working collaboratively with all indigenous communities, respecting their sovereignty, and prioritizing their voices and perspectives. We recognize that the work of preserving and celebrating indigenous cultures is ongoing, and we are dedicated to continuing this work for generations to come.
