The Baltimore American Indian Center, Inc. (BAIC) is a center for American Indians that is located in Upper Fell's Point, Baltimore, Maryland. The center was founded in 1968 as the "American Indian Study Center" to serve the growing Native American community in Baltimore. In 2011, the Center reestablished its museum for American Indian heritage.[1]

The Center hosts the Native American After School Art Program, founded by community artist and Lumbee Tribal member Ashley Minner in 2007.[2]

In 2015, local artist Dean Tonto Cox, grandson of one of the founders of the Baltimore American Indian Center, Ms. Elizabeth Locklear, repainted an outside mural of the Center.[3]
