Our Programs Algonquin Longhouse

of the Algonquin Longhouse, Inc. NFP

Building memories that last two lifetimes



We are a group of 1,000+ families in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago that have joined together to celebrate and build upon the bonds with our children within the proud Native American theme.

We offer different programs for children of all ages.  Our Indian Guide and Indian Princess Programs are recommended for elementary school age kids, although many continue to participate even into middle school.  The Trails Programs are designed with busy, older kids in mind – no tribal meetings and more challenging events (e.g. horseback riding, white water rafting, and paintball).

Under the Algonquin Longhouse Charter, blessed and embraced by the founding families of the Indian Guides & Princesses Program, our program is completely member owned and managed!

We volunteer our time to plan and attend fun events with our kids including campouts three times per year, overnighters at museums, and other fun activities such as bowling, skating and pinewood derbies.

We invite you to join us.  You'll be glad you did!


How the Algonquin Longhouse, Inc. NFP is organized

Algonquin Federation
Guide Program  - Chiricahua Nation, Comanche Nation, Illinois Nation, Iroquois Nation,  and  Kickapoo Nation
Princess Program  - Mighty Chickasaw, Croix Nation, Huron Nation, Mohawk Nation, Mohican Nation,  Prairie Nation, and Sequoia Nation

The 12 Nations are further subdivided into local tribes.  Tribes typically meet once a month during the school year at a member's home.  In addition, the Tribes of each Nation participate together at one big event each month from September through June.

We'd love to hear from you to answer your questions, introduce you to our members and invite you to try out our programs.  Please join us for an event before you decide whether to join.  Most of us joined because someone invited us to a tribal meeting or a nation event, our kids had fun and we did too.
