"This kid, my nephew, did exactly what his granda told him. Sometimes you have to take a bullet. I'm very proud of him also. The project is in south Minneapolis."
About Little Earth
Little Earth was founded in 1973 to create affordable housing in South Minneapolis. As the first urban housing complex with Native preference, Little Earth serves as a national model, at the forefront of American Indian migration into urban areas. The urbanization of American Indians has continued over the past three decades. The 2010 U.S. Census reports that 78% of American Indians now live in urban areas and Little Earth continues its role as a central focal point for the local and national American Indian population.
Our community is not a reservation. Instead, we are a united people of 39 different tribes, hoping to share our sense of togetherness with others.
Today, Little Earth is comprised of four organizations with a unified management structure. Each organization has a separate function, however all work cooperatively to build our community and create opportunities for Indian people to achieve self-determination.
