Cultural Facilities in Native Communities: Present & Future Survey
Guest Post from the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, & Museums
***Deadline to respond to the survey is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7. All Native communities need to respond to this 10-minute survey. Help us help you.***
Preliminary responses to the Cultural Facilities in Native Communities: Present & Future Survey are revealing a serious need for new or improved facilities. To date, Native communities are reporting that only 15% of archival facilities are adequate, followed by 30% for libraries, 26% for museums, and 18% for cultural centers.
Forty-nine percent of reporting communities indicate they need new facilities but have not started the process, 13% are in the planning process but have not broken ground, and 8% have new facilities under construction.
Once the survey closes, updated results will be included in a Needs Assessment Report, along with recommended actions.
All Native communities should be heard. If you are receiving this survey and do not represent a Native community, please share it with those you know and encourage their participation.
Responses are due by Friday, December 7, 2018. TAKE THE SURVEY
Thank you for your continued support.
