MissionAmerind seeks to foster and promote knowledge and understanding of the Native Peoples of the Americas through research, education, conservation, and community engagement.
What We DoAt Amerind you can learn about Native American history and their contemporary lives. Here Indigenous communities share their traditional knowledge with all who visit. Academic research center, museum, art gallery, historic property, scenic destination, community gathering place. Amerind is all of this and more. Since 1937 we have been dedicated to preserving and illuminating the cultural objects and traditions of the Native Peoples of the Americas. What began as founder William Shirley Fulton's personal passion for archaeology, grew to decades of research advancements and cross-cultural understanding. Through our museum, art gallery, collections, research, and public programming and with our community of visitors, scholars, and Native American friends we:
Explore the past as a window to the future.
Expand opportunities for tribal communities to share their knowledge and art.
Inspire diverse audiences.
Gather as a community in discovery and learning.
