Be a Philanthropist and Donate to the Phoenix Indian School Legacy Project

Be a Philanthropist and Donate to the Phoenix Indian School Legacy Project

Since 1990, when the Phoenix Indian School closed, the music building has sat vacant. With the support of LISC Phoenix and the Caterpillar Foundation, Native American Connections and the Phoenix Indian Center are partnering to renovate this building and turn it into a place where Native Americans can come and enjoy the site where many once attended school, played in the band, or on one of the many outstanding sports teams.

Phoenix Indian, or P.I., as it is fondly referred to, was one of several boarding schools in the country operated by the U.S. government in the late 1800s. While the history of Indian boarding schools is harsh, there are many stories of triumph and success despite the forced assimilation efforts.

Once this building is renovated, Native Americans and all Arizonans can come to the site and learn about the history, participate in symposiums and meetings there, or take a class is health and nutrition in the commercial kitchen.  Food entrepreneurs can also utilize the commercial kitchen which will be available for rent.

LISC Phoenix and the Caterpillar Foundation have graciously provided financial support to the Phoenix Indian School Legacy Project. This short video describes their support, along with the history and future impact of the Legacy Project.

Please join our effort to make this dream a reality! Click here to make an on-line donation. Donations may also be mailed to Native American Connections, 4520 North Central Avenue, Ste. 600 Phoenix AZ 85012.
