What Our Clients Say

"I came to the Indian Center with nothing. I was new to Denver. I didn't know where to go…Now, I am enrolled in programs at the Indian Center and have felt so much support from their staff. I am about to finish training on my new job that I got after participating in the workforce program and I am about halfway through with the Fatherhood program's classes. I see the day that I came to the Indian Center as a big turning point in my life in Denver. I am so grateful for everything …"

The Denver Indian Center, Inc. on Monday hosted 3 Humphrey Fellows from the University of Washington on Indigenous rights.  Denver Indian Center, Inc. hosted Mr. Christorpher Silver from British Columbia, Canada, Ms. Ritu Thapa, from Nepal, and Ms. Vilma Saloj Chiyal from Guatemala. During this exchange, the fellows learned about urban American Indian and Alaskan Native issues and learned about programming to support and expand support for their communities. A few of the programs highlighted were the Elders program and the Honoring Fatherhood Program.

This spring, the University of Washington collaborated with the UW Canadian Studies Center and UW Native American Law Center to host a group of 20 senior international professionals as part of the Distinguished Humphrey Fellowship Program: Rights of Indigenous Peoples (DHFP). This program, a smaller-scale version of the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education. 

The 2024 cohort of Fellows comprises government officials, non-profit leaders, lawyers, and other senior professionals dedicated to advancing indigenous rights. They will be at the University of Washington for a week-long training from May 5th to May 12th.
