DICI is an urban cultural gathering center for the American Indian/ Alaska Native community. of the Denver Metro area. Founded in 1983 to meet the unique needs and challenges facing the of the Native community; we support our Native youth and community by providing guidance for economic
empowerment and self-reliance, programs that empower families and honor our elders, and by offering a space where Native culture can be preserved and celebrated.
The club is made up of native Hawaiians, former residents of Hawaii and other who simply love Hawai’i. Although we are from ethnically diverse backgrounds, we come together with a sense of community to share the history, culture and beauty of Hawai’i.
Volunteers are invited to join the Tipi Raisers at our Base Camp and work and play alongside Lakota tribal workers to help repair homes, deliver needed donations, cut firewood, share meals and learn about the rich Lakota culture.
The Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ (OHA’s) Papakilo Database, is the ongoing development of a cutting edge and comprehensive “Database of Databases” consisting of varied collections of data pertaining to historically and culturally significant places, events, and documents in Hawai'i’s history. This online repository of data will greatly increase OHA’s ability to preserve and perpetuate cultural and historical information and practices, thus providing an invaluable resource to educate other regulatory agencies, OHA’s Native Hawaiian beneficiaries, and the general public.
