The members of the Chicago American Indian Community Collaborative are
dedicated to furthering diverse causes and the greater well-being of American
Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and First Nations people in the

fostering mutual aide, political support, positive public recognition,
strategic alliances, collaborations, and partnerships.   CAICC will

for dialogue, advocacy and planning with the goal of empowering CAICC to better
address the issues and needs of the American Indian community.
