A Tribe Called Urban
Sacred Pipe Resource Center is committed to hosting community-wide discussions about issues important to American Indians. Our free SPRC Speaker Series events feature presentations by Native experts in a variety of fields from around the country.
Our first SPRC Speaker Series in 2015-16 was A Tribe Called Urban, a discussion of what it means to be an urban Indian in a contemporary world. This Series took a look at the issues that impact urban American Indians as a unique population, and the ways in which urban Indians can become fully integrated into the Bismarck-Mandan community.
