About the Indian Center

History

Indian Center, Inc. was incorporated in 1969 as a non-profit organization in the State of Nebraska with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. In 1980 the Indian Center dedicated its 22,000 square foot building that was financed through a $1.1 million grant from the Economic Development Administration.

Since its inception, the Indian Center has proven to be an integral and vital part of the City of Lincoln’s human service network serving not only Native Americans but non-Natives as well. From its Headquarter office in Lincoln, the Center provides a continuum of human services on a state-wide basis from its satellite offices in Omaha, Scottsbluff, and South Sioux City.

The Center is home to the Whispering Giant, a 30-foot wood sculpture created by Peter Toth, a Hungarian immigrant, in 1980. The icon has boldly guarded the Indian Center for nearly three decades and served as a symbol of unity and honor to the Indian Community of Lincoln.

The Center was a recent recipient of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prestigious 2008 Outstanding Grantee Award, given annually to Workforce Investment Act Programs that have exhibited outstanding management practices.
