“Museums are changing,” explains Jim Enote (Zuni Pueblo), who helped create the IARC’s Guidelines for Collaboration, released in 2019. The product of several years of critical discourse between over sixty Native and non-Native museum professionals, cultural leaders, artists, and scholars, the Guidelines inform institutions about the proper stewardship of Native collections based on Indigenous values, and offer guidance on creating what Enote calls “two-way learning,” which can occur when museums and Native communities forge a partnership. Enote, the CEO of the Colorado Plateau Foundation, explains that through the Guidelines, Indigenous values are married with “the science of curation."
