The Museum of the Southeast American Indian (formerly The Native American Resource Center)

The name of the Native American Resource Center has been changed to The Museum of the Southeast American Indian.  As part of the Southeast American Indian Studies Program at UNC Pembroke, The Museum of the Southeast American Indian maximizes the capacity of the University to address the complex historical, cultural and contemporary issues facing American Indian communities in North Carolina and the American Southeast.  The Museum’s cross-disciplinary collaborations greatly enhance the University’s programs of research, service, outreach and instruction.

The Museum of the Southeast American Indian is a multi-faceted museum and resource for scholarly research and community outreach.  The Museum contains exhibits of authentic Indian artifacts, arts and crafts from Indian communities all over the Americas, and especially from the American Southeast.  Many items come from North Carolina Native communities, with special emphasis on Robeson County Indian people.  Specific focus is placed on the largest North Carolina tribe, the Lumbee, but our outreach activities have extended into Virginia and South Carolina with plans for further outreach throughout the Southeast.

The mission of The Museum of the Southeast American Indian is to educate and serve the public about the prehistory, history, culture, art and contemporary issues of American Indians, with special emphasis on the Native American communities of Robeson County, of North Carolina and of the American Southeast; to conduct scholarly research; to collect and preserve the material culture of Native America; to encourage American Indian artists and crafts persons; and to cooperate on a wide range of research and service projects with other institutions and agencies concerned with American Indians.

 

Hours of Operation:  The Museum will be operating temporarily on a modified schedule.  Our modified hours will be Monday through Friday 9 AM to 5 PM.  We will NOT be opening on Saturdays at this time.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
