In 1995 The Anishinaabe Center was established by concerned Anishinaabe (Ojibwe-Chippewa) people who saw a pressing need for an organization which would support their community to achieve economic, emotional and cultural balance. The center advocates for human rights while also providing cultural, spiritual, social and economic services for its constituents. With the support of the Fund of the Sacred Circle, the Anishinaabe Center has been able to focus on increasing civic engagement in the community and educating local Anishanaabe about tribal politics, elections and democracy. They have strived particularly to get young people involved in tribal politics and encourage them to play an active role in the constitutional convention. There is still a lot of work to be done to truly engage the local Anishinaabe community in constitutional issues, but the Center continues to provide the momentum to keep the movement alive.
