Abiinooji-Aki Inc. (A.A.I.) was founded in 1992 and received its Tax Exempt status in 1999 as a Charitable Organization. A.A.I. was founded to assist in the tribe’s efforts to combat the high rate of alcohol and drug abuse. Abiinooji-Aki is located on the Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation near Hayward, WI. In the last 24 years this program has accomplished many goals in the areas of AODA, MH, Women issues and spiritual growth. Abiinooji-Aki believes the value of the culture, ceremonies and rituals are essential and crucial to the growth of the body, mind and spirit. With that in mind we are combining our efforts along with many grassroots people to bring women together to empower them with Spiritual knowledge and self-determination that will inspire them to stand up for Clean Water.  It is a vital step that all women have to take to make sure life continues for Mother Earth and for all of our generations to come.


We invite you to look at our Website and read our messages on face book.  Consider this opportunity to attend a one of a kind Symposium.
