The Anishnaabek Healing Circle (AHC) is an initiative of the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Inc.
The Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Inc., (ITC) is a consortium of federally recognized Indian tribes in Michigan. The elected tribal chairpersons of the constituent tribes serve as the Board of Directors. The primary mission of this tribal organization is to act as a forum for member tribes; advocate in the development of programs and policies that will improve the economy, health, education and quality of life for Michigan Native Americans; and to provide technical assistance to member tribes.
ITC is 100% controlled by the tribes; each of the chairpersons represents one vote on the Board of Directors. ITC and the participating tribes have a solid 50-year history of collaboration on health and human services initiatives. Tribal substance abuse and behavioral health programs are an outgrowth of the identified community need to provide culturally appropriate services.
The target population for Anishnaabek Healing Circle Programs include:
Tribal members of Michigan tribes residing in tribal service areas.
Descendents and family members of these tribal members (family members may be non-native or descendents).
Members of other tribes, including state recognized and Canadian tribes residing in the tribal service areas.
Descendants and family members of members of other tribes or Canadian tribes residing in the tribal service areas.Learn more...
