National Center for Great Lakes Native American Culture, Inc. was formed as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 educational organization. The Center is compos
ed of Native and non-Native members whose mission is to continue and preserve traditional Great Lakes Native American art, history and culture by helping
pass those traditions on to Native People and by educating the general public about
the importance of Great Lakes Native peoples, their art, history and culture.
The Center has no political agenda. Our focus is on education. We have seen far too many of our treasured elders and tradition bearers begin their Spirit Journey without knowing who would carry on in their place. Additionally, we know too many
Native people who are displaced from their tribal land-base and separated from their traditional tribal cultures.
NCGLNAC now owns nearly 30 acres
(generously donated by the Jay County Fair Board) of beautiful,
wooded land, complete with pond and wetlands, located just north of the Jay County Fairgrounds in Portland, Indiana. The ethno-botanical hiking trail was opened in 2008.
