Indigenous cultural exhibits at modern museums are innovative and immersive. Sit in a storytelling chair and sink into sound recordings made by living speakers of ancient Indigenous languages. Step into an oceanfront longhouse and see the regalia of chiefs and shamans. The best Indigenous cultural displays are authentic and respectful. They are created with, owned by, and reflective of the values and designs of the Indigenous people they belong to.
