Natives Serving Natives for over 35 years

Please excuse our appearance. We are in the process of updating our website.

We are the Rhode Island Indian Council, Inc., a private, non-profit agency that promotes the social, economic, and cultural well-being of all tribal communities in Rhode Island.

Established in Providence in 1975, the agency is governed and staffed primarily by Native Americans. Our constituents include over 7,000 Indians in Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware; each representing more than fifty tribes.

We are here to meet the needs of today’s American Indian families, and to serve as a center for cultural, historical, and social exchange.

Ultimately, we are building a future for our people based on the Indian nations’ history, traditions, and philosophies. This is the understanding we want to share with all people.
