American Indian Veterans Memorial (AIVM), Phoenix, Arizona

The AIVM was created to establish a memorial to honor the American Indian Veterans of all wars and to provide a place for veterans, their families, and the survivors to gather and pay tribute to living and deceased victims. AICAE is supporting the AIVM by promoting fund raising efforts and providing design development support. AICAE  held a design charette in Scottsdale, Arizona on May 3rd, 2001 with the AIVM Board for refinement of the design. For further information and to send contributions to AIVM, view the AIVM brochure.

Celilo Village Longhouse Needs Assessment

AICAE brought together its membership of architects, engineers, construction managers, and landscape architects in the Fall of 2000 to perform a needs assessment for the Celilo Village Longhouse which is located near the Dalles, Oregon at the historic location of the Celilo Falls on the Columbia River. The Longhouse is a well used gathering place for Indian Tribes and Families for Pow-Wows and festivities. The Longhouse is in need of many serious repairs to the roof, footings, kitchen, lighting, and plumbing system. AICAE provided a needs assessment to the Celilo Village families in order for them to identify needs and seek funding for the improvements.

National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), Smithsonian Institution

AICAE is an avid supporter of the NMAI and many members are involved in the actual design of NMAI. NMAI is currently under construction at the Washington DC Mall next to the Air & Space Museum. Fund raising is still an on-going effort and support can be provided by purchasing a Buffalo Coin from the U.S. Mint or giving to the Honor Wall. The NMAI Honor Wall provides a donor an opportunity to have their name appear on an interior wall of the Mall Museum building (up to 30 characters for a mere $150). For more info about the Honor Wall, please go to and click on "Membership & Giving". For more information on the Buffalo Coin, please contact the US Mint at the US Mint (or call 1-800-USA-MINT).

The AICAE Logo

The circular emblem represents the cycle of life and continuity. The colors (black, red, yellow, white) are those of the four directions. The spokes of the wheel represent the four directions the Council members come from. The dots in the spoke rim represent the members from that direction. The fire represents the Council fire when we meet and which can be lit in any part of the circle.
