About Us

Preserving the Past

The American Indian Community House 50 Winters Count project will not only preserve the past fifty years of urban intertribal Indian life in New York City, but will also give the city’s urban Indian population a way to dream of what images could be created in the next fifty years for future generations to remember.

Our History

image12

We will be working with elders, youth, and other community members to create “Waniyetu Wowapi” (Winter Count) images for the 50th anniversary of the American Indian Community House (AICH) in New York City. The project will preserve the last 50 years of history for urban Indian people in the area.


“We’re fortunate to have many of the elders from the past 50 years still with us,” Sheldon Raymore says. “Their generosity in sharing their stories and narratives will preserve the integrity of the project.”

Get Involved

We are welcoming community members to join the 50 Winters project so they can work on it together. Bringing in youth for the project allows them to witness the importance of knowledge keeping as they work to create initial images for the project.

Throughout the process, we are going to be documenting the project through video, capturing not only the details of the process but also the stories behind the images that are representing the last fifty years. The videos produced will be for sharing with the AICH community and beyond through online platforms like YouTube.
