In 1972, a group of Aboriginal people who recognized a great need for a “Gathering Place” in the Hamilton community established a temporary cultural centre housed on Park Street South. Now a non-profit Aboriginal organization located on Ottawa Street North, the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre (HRIC) aims to create change that empowers urban Aboriginal people and provides them with the tools to achieve a holistically balanced lifestyle.
