Tribal governments, museums and cultural centers

Burke Museum

The Burke holds deep respect for Indigenous knowledge, and is dedicated to collaborating with diverse Native populations, sharing collections and learning together. We work with a number of stakeholders, including Indian Tribes of the Pacific Northwest. As the Washington State Museum of Natural History and Culture, we honor the government-to-government nature of our relationship with these sovereign nations.
