Native American Art Educator Resources, Map and Advanced Search, object images, and related videos were made possible in part by a federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

We are grateful to the many scholars, students, community members, and educators (both Native and non-Native) who contributed their knowledge to our understanding of these objects and helped shape the content of this resource.

The Educator Resources were conceived and written by Vivian Ladd, Museum Education Consultant.
