Tribal Museum and Cultural Center Management
In the face of continuing threats to Native American languages, culture and communities, many communities are embarking on new strategies to keep their vital cultural resources intact. One of these strategies is to establish museums where communities can collect and safeguard important cultural items. Native communities can achieve this by establishing a museum that is for and by the community.
The necessity to preserve culture is a growing concern for many tribal communities, and preserving culturally significant artifacts is one way to ensure that this knowledge is available to tribes' younger generations. Creating a museum, however, can be a daunting task. We’ll provide valuable information that will help guide you through the process of initiating community awareness and developing a facility that will long remain a vital link in the preservation of your tribe’s culture.
This class will be held at the Holiday Inn Express, which is located directly across the street from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Take advantage of this terrific opportunity to visit this wonderful cultural center, the "Gateway to the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico."
