Mary LaGarde is the Executive Director of the Minneapolis American Indian Center (MAIC) and a member of the White Earth Nation. She was selected to lead the organization in June 2013 and has over 30 years of nonprofit experience in program services, including management and development.

In 2008, LaGarde received the DreamMaker Award from the Ann Bancroft Foundation. In 2014, she was honored at the University of Minnesota’s American Indian Student Cultural Center’s Honoring of American Indian Women, and LaGarde was named a 2016 Local Public Health Hero by the City of Minneapolis Health Department. She received her B.A. in Sociology/American Racial and Multicultural Studies from St. Olaf College (Northfield, MN).

In this week’s episode, we learn about the importance of community, family, and youth services as the center of many development goals at MAIC through the eyes of LaGarde. The renovated center will introduce the Boys and Girls Club, a new resource that will serve as an umbrella for some of the youth programming. Visitors can look forward to new volunteer opportunities and renovations of the fitness center, Two Rivers Gallery, and the Gatherings Café. A large celebration will kick off the grand re-opening of the Minneapolis American Indian Center in May of 2024.
