Copied from an email that I received:
On behalf of the Tribal Council and its Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum , I am honored to be able to announce that the American Association of Museums has declared the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum as the first tribally-owned museum to be accredited. This has been almost 5 years in the making and many thanks to all who have been a part of this groundbreaking endeavor. There have been so many people and departments who have made this goal a reality that it has definitely been a TEAM/TRIBAL effort.
The Tribal Council has proven its dedication to the preservation of its arts, history and culture by seeking Accreditation for its Museum. Accreditation allows the Tribe to have standards that follow the industry's best practices for a sustainable program.
