Overview

The Mid-America All-Indian Center is the only facility of its kind in Kansas that is solely dedicated to educating people about and preserving the art and culture of American Indians. The Indian Center invites visitors to stroll through its many areas that include: A museum with exhibits of contemporary art and cultural artifacts that depict the American Indian nations of the past and present. Many of the exhibits have interactive aspects and hands on items for the kids. Seasonal outdoor learning center, which include a full-size tipi and native gardening area. Gift Shop selling American Indian-made items, music, movies, jewelry and Keeper of the Plains items. Large indoor area, known as the Gallery of Nations, contains nearly 100 flags of Indian nations. It is the area where special events and private rentals take place. The center not only showcases local tribes, but those throughout the United States and Canada. It is not affiliated with one particular tribe, so the Mid-America All-Indian Center is a place where are American Indians and the general public can come to share their experiences, learn and interact with each other. There are 10,000 American Indians representing 73 tribes in the Wichita area.

This was our first trip to Wichita. Don't ask me why, our travels just never took us there before. Wichita is a very friendly and clean city, and alongside the downtown area, there are two rivers that intersect, The Arkansas River and the Little Arkansas...More

Ok, I have a real interest in this one. My grandmothers cousin Jay Russell Hunter helped with this place and performed here often before he passed. If you love Native culture and you're in town, this is a must do especially during Pow Wow.

but just as good. Enjoyed the inside and outside exhibits. Found a cd in the gift shop I had been looking for. What a tribute to America's first people. I had not been here in over 20 years.

Most non-Indians are woefully ignorant of Native Americans' contribution to this country. This Center is colorful, educational, and interesting. The artwork and history are amazing.

I tried to find a museum in the Blackwell/Ponca City OK area that compares to the Mid-America All-Indian Center. None came close to the content of this museum. There is plenty of Native American art & history to see. The gift shop warrants a visit...More
