Tribal libraries, archives, and museums are unique settings that balance tribal protocols and infuse their services with expressions of tribal lifeways, from their footprints on the land to their architecture and interior design, institutional names, signage, and Native language promotion. This book offers a collection of articles devoted to tribal libraries and archives and provides an opportunity to share their stories, challenges, achievements, and aspirations to the larger professional community.
