The Ain Dah Yung Center – which means “our home” in the Ojibwe language – sponsors the annual Cherish the Children Pow Wow. The Center is a national model for providing a broad spectrum of culturally relevant and cost-effective social services to American Indian youth and their families – a group that has been reluctant to use mainstream government services and programs.

The Ain Dah Yung Center provides a continuum of care and services – recognizing that, in American Indian culture, you can’t grow as a person until you have honor, dignity, and respect for both yourself and everything around you. Each year, the Ain Dah Yung Center provides services to about 1100 youth and families, using traditional American Indian beliefs as a starting point for personal and community growth.

The Ain Dah Yung Center is a cornerstone for community healing. We are committed to ensuring that American Indian youth and families in the Twin Cities Area retain access to their Indigenous rights of community belonging and culturally identity.
