The First Americans Museum is a living institution that acts as a home for First Americans, and welcomes non-Natives as guests. It offers a variety of unique spaces and state-of-the-art resources, including permanent exhibits and a community resource center. Through a blend of interactive media, text, graphics and film, visitors experience a multiplicity of First American voices that impart an ancient – yet very contemporary – story with the purpose of generating awareness, sharing knowledge, sustaining traditions, honoring ancestors and celebrating these diverse and thriving cultures.
