Abstract

Many Native Americans share a great concern about the loss of their cultures and languages. Museums with substantial American Indian collections acknowledge their responsibility to use those collections in ways that benefit Native people. The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) has been collaborating with the Four Directions project and the University of Texas to find ways to involve tribal communities in the development of virtual museums using materials from museum collections and community resources to help revitalize Native cultures.
