Baltimore American Indian Center

Mission

The Baltimore American Indian Center (BAIC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has been serving Native American Indians in the Baltimore metropolitan area and surrounding areas since 1968. The BAIC was established to serve as a social and cultural "home base" for Native American Indians in the region. Many Native American Indians, primarily Lumbees (North Carolina) began moving into the Baltimore area during the 1940s in search of better jobs to support themselves and their families. Leaders from this community have designed and continue to implement the culturally competent plan of advocacy that the BAIC uses to this day to provide local indigenous Americans with crucial social services in a centralized, understanding environment. We currently offer housing, employment, child care and healthcare assistance as well as cultural education programs, events, and youth activities that help keep our heritages alive.
