Reality Based Research
The American Indian Policy Center (AIPC) was founded in 1992, as a non-profit
serving the Midwest Indian community. It was born out of a decade's worth
of discussions among the founding group of American Indian professionals.
What was needed, in the view of the founders, was a forum for American
Indians and the wider community to discuss the challenges of contemporary
Indian life--a place for diverse and divergent voices and perspectives.
Today the Center focuses on research, policy development and education
on critical Indian issues. We sponsor two annual forums on significant
issues of public policy, from primary education to preservation of treaty
rights. We also work to expand research on Indian issues using a unique
model of Reality-Based Research.
