The American Indian Association of Illinois is the best American Indian education program in Chicago. It offers a fantastic college program on the weekends fully accredited by Eastern Illinois University. It also sponsors the Chicago American Indian Museum Without Walls and the award winning Black Hawk American Indian Music and Dance Performance Company, which is the oldest and finest of its kind in the world.
