The North American Indian Center of Boston has been in Jamaica Plain for 50 years as a resource of Native Americans in the greater Boston area. This week the organization is participating in two big events on Saturday: an exhibition to tell untold native women’s stories, and the organization will be leading the Wake Up the Earth Parade and opening ceremony of Wake up the Earth.
On Saturday night, NAICOB’s Circles of Support Women’s Program will be hosting a fundraiser gala Doors Unhinged: An Exhibition of Untold Native Women’s Stories. There will be live performances by Native American musicians and dancers, an auction and an exhibition of doors that share the stories of native women who have experiences domestic violence.
Money generated from this event will go to support the Circles of Support Women’s Program and other programming at NAICOB. Click here for more info and to purchase tickets. This event will be at the North American Indian Center of Boston at 105 South Huntington Ave.
Also, earlier in the day NAICOB will lead the Wake Up the Earth Parade and Opening Ceremony of Wake up the Earth in conjunction with Spontaneous Celebrations.
NAICOB also recently completed an online fundraising campaign to reach $5,000 to repair its building, which has fallen into disrepair.
Originally established in 1969 as the Boston Indian Council, NAICOB was later organized as the North American Indian Center of Boston, a non-profit organization, in 1991.
