Storytelling with the Council of Three Rivers American Indian Center

Exhibit Related Program

January 6, 2019

In conjunction with the Native Voices exhibit, join Miguel Sague Jr. from the Council of Three Rivers American Indian Center in the Art Studio as he shares traditional stories from tribes in Southwest Pennsylvania.

The Council of Three Rivers American Indian Center was initially conceived in 1969 when members of two Native American families in Pittsburgh sought to overcome the feeling of "floating" in the mainstream. They felt the need to maintain their identity as Native People, recapture roots and become more conscious of their rights as Native Americans. In February 1972 after several years of planning the Council was incorporated as a non-profit organization under the laws of Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Internal Revenue Service regulations. The Council operated from offices in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh until July ,1976 when it moved to its present headquarters in Dorseyville, Indiana Township.
