The United American Indian Involvement, Inc. (UAII) was founded in 1973, with the assistance of the National Institute for Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse, to serve the Indian community of Los Angeles. They provide a myriad of social services, including hot meals, showers, beds, referrals, and emergency medical care to American Indians who walked in off the street. This chapter discusses the rise of grassroots Indian activism and how the shifts in U.S. Indian policy and American Indian activism, particularly the public protests of the Red Power Movement, influenced the efforts of UAII to serve urban Indian populations.
