Greetings from Ashley Tuomi, Executive Director... Łax̣ayam, AIHFS is still recovering from the flooding but we are very happy that all of our services have been able to continue. Look for more improvements coming including new entrance ramps to the building. Please be patient as we go through all of these changes. For those that want to help with the restoration or our ramp repairs we are still accepting donations. You can send us a donation through the mail or through our website. We were fortunate that we had already planned to partner with North American Indian Association of Detroit for Native American Heritage Day in September. This was a great opportunity to combine our efforts in providing a pow wow and health fair for the community and allowed us to utilize our partnership in a more effective way. We had a great turn out and are looking forward to continuing this event partnership next year.
Due to reduced space issues we are going to be having our winter solstice at University of Michigan Dearborn this year. I hope that you all will join us this year on December 21st from 5-9 PM. Have a safe and winter and Happy Holidays!
