Native American Cultural and Educational Authority
In 1994, the Oklahoma Legislature created the Native American Cultural and Educational Authority, (NACEA) a state agency authorized to construct a Cultural Center and Museum for the purpose of generating awareness and understanding of the history of tribes and their relationship to Oklahoma today.

Located in the Heart of Indian Country, The Center integrates the earth, people and nature as a connected whole. This unparalleled museum experience features interactive exhibitions, educational programming and events in the 173,000 square foot architectural spaces that echo Native values and traditions.
