The bulk of the collection consists of general files including correspondence, meeting minutes, and career day records.

Also included in the collection is MIEC's survey with the Milwaukee Public Library of Milwaukee American Indian library users, library holdings, and related matters. This project helped establish a Native American Library Project at the Milwaukee Public Library. The collection also contains records regarding MIEC's relationship with the "WE Indians" Program and the Wisconsin Indian Educational Act of 1977.
