Pull your bucket list out because the Museum of Native American History is one to add! MONAH was voted top 10 history museums by USA Today, and you don’t want to miss it!
MONAH’s mission is to showcase the diversity of cultures and artistry of the first People of all the Americas through our art collection through five periods of history from Paleo through the European influence. It is important that they weave the past with present day indigenous cultural leaders making history today through our programming, and onward to educate and inspire future generations through our family of presenters to honor and build upon traditional knowledge. The museum houses 10,000 of the finest Native American artifacts.
Thinking about visiting? Join us at MONAH on November 13 for the “Hear Our Voices” event with Geri Keams. On November 27, learn the Cherokee language with Lawrence Panther.
Charolette Buchanan-Yale, museum director, tells us “Bentonville is a special place that welcomes diversity, and with over 574 federally-recognized indigenous Nations, not to mention indigenous people from South America, Canada and the Antille Islands, there is a lot to learn. We hope a visit to MONAH plants seeds to listen, be open, curious, and travel well.”
