Museums and Native American communities are increasingly engaging in collaborative work, both at the museum and in community-based initiatives. From arts revitalization to the documentation of collections, museum staff and community members are sharing expertise and perspectives, and creating a new movement in the field of museology. In response to a growing interest in this work, an online resource for collaborative work has been developed over a three-year period of critical discourse among museum professionals, cultural leaders, artists, and scholars. This discussion explores the guidelines’ development process, plans for expanding the online resource, and its collective impact.
