Urban Indian Heritage Society is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization originally founded to research, document and preserve the history and culture of Misclassified, disenfranchised American Indian lineal descendants who are victims of genocide, while being excluded from federally protected activities.
Urban Indian Heritage Society also advocates for civic engagement, both Civil and Human rights and the curation, preservation and maintenance of ancestral lands, as well as the appropriate renaming of historical sites.
The Urban Indian Heritage Society (UIHS) is located in Hampton, Virginia. Our society was founded in 2020 by a group of passionate individuals who wanted to make a difference in their communities. Since then, we have grown exponentially, and our reach has extended.
UIHS is a nonprofit organization that advances historical knowledge, civic engagement, culture, education, genealogy, and community support. We are dedicated to preserving and sharing the history and culture of American Indians in urban areas and beyond.
Many people with American Indian ancestry have been disconnected from their heritage, but we are here to help people rediscover and reconnect to their ancestry, culture, and to support the community with civil engagement. We offer resources to help American Indians learn about their heritage and connect with other Urban Indians. We also provide genealogical information to help you trace your family history. UIHS is committed to providing quality, community-based service to educate people on the Urban Indian and misclassified American Indian.
