Experience our shared American history through the lens of the 39 distinct tribal nations in Oklahoma today. Through our exhibitions, visitors will engage with living stories, cultures, and arts, from the traditional to the contemporary.
Developed in close collaboration with the tribal nations in Oklahoma, Native scholars and Knowledge Givers, FAM exhibitions represent our narratives from a distinctly Native perspective.

Explore the collective stories of the 39 Tribal Nations who were removed from their ancestral homelands to what is now Oklahoma.
WINIKO: Life of an Object examines the things we make—how they reflect our values, possess spiritual significance and carry our ways into future generations.
Walk into a pop-up book world that is familiar, yet magical. This family space is playful, sometimes funny and always safe. It combines hands-on activities, physical challenges and media-rich interactives to emphasize that we are all connected.
The full-service restaurant will feature a sit-down dining experience, complete with great ambience and service. Delicious menu items are inspired by authentic Native recipes and tribally specific dishes. Ingredients will be sourced locally and regionally, with a focus on produce and game indigenous to Oklahoma. The menu will also serve as an educational tool to bring awareness to culinary distinctions between tribes, and the cultural history behind the recipes. This restaurant will be a unique experience in Oklahoma.
