Look for our museum at this event... 
 

 
The Kentucky Native American Heritage Museum was founded in 1999 to promote understanding of North America's Indigenous People from both historic and contemporary perspectives, through collection and dissemination of information about their histories, cultures, beliefs, and expressive arts; their existing communities, lifestyles, occupations and ways; and their past and ongoing contributions to Appalachia's and our nation's cultural weave.
 

 
We have particular interest in providing venues for and otherwise supporting the work and lifestyles of those who preserve tribal traditions in their homes and communities through educational and social activities, creative expressions and proactive honoring of diversity in schools, museums, libraries, festivals and other public and private outlets.


The museum brings native people and the general public into closer contact with each other, promoting mutual awareness and appreciation. The museum also teaches children and adults about the Eastern Woodland Tribes which inhabited this region when Europeans first came and had significant affect on everything from choice of self-government to food-ways and survival skills; whose descendants (estimated to include up to 90% of all Appalachians) still play the primary role in shaping the mountain character.


The museum began as a mobile outreach to schools, libraries, museums, festivals and Pow Wows in Kentucky. Originally designed to serve Kentucky, we now reach service areas in Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Through 2011, 80,000 people have directly benefited from active participation in our programs.
