Michigan Indian Elders Association

The Michigan Indian Elders Association (MIEA) was formed in 1997 to address the varied needs for the Elders in the state of Michigan.

The purpose is to aid and assist in the improvement of the economic, social, healthful and spiritual well-being of those Elders through a forum where the Elder may speak, learn, grow and exercise control over their environment by having representation, enabling access to services, provide prevention training, and act as an advocate for member organizations.

MIEA has representation from eleven of the state's 12 federally recognized tribes.
