White Mountain Apache Tribe

Log Number: MN-00-19-0027-19

The White Mountain Apache Tribe will completely refurbish the primary exhibition in Nohwike' B gowa Museum to better reflect the community's current experience, needs, and priorities. The renovation will also expand the museum's capacity to provide educational services for all visitors. To complete planning for the "Ndee Bik‚/Footprints of the Apache" exhibit, the tribe will consult with the community to reimagine the space and visit other museums to identify appropriate Western Apache collections for loan. The gallery renovation work will include modification of exhibit cases and lighting upgrades and the creation of new text panels, images, and audio-visual presentations. The tribe has also joined the National Museum of the American Indian in a pilot project to bring objects held in their collections back to the White Mountain Apache community for exhibition.
