Mission Statement

The purpose of this museum is to bring historical truth
to light through the means of education using actual
documentation of events that have transpired in the
near extermination, and in some cases, the total
extermination of native tribes and cultures.  It will be a
memorial to the victims of ethnic cleansing.  Racism,
discrimination and injustice will be addressed with the
purpose of promoting public awareness that these
elements of genocide which existed in the past,
continue to exist today.  A further purpose of the
museum will be to address prejudice which is
generated toward native peoples through biased
reporting of history.  The goal of influencing authors of
school textbooks with irrefutable documentation shall
be of major importance.  A library and microfilm
archive will be available.  The visual use of art,
sculpture and film will create a memorable learning
experience.
