The Haskell Cultural Center and Museum opened on September 14, 2002, with the vision of respectfully serving as a steward of living tribal materials, traditions and cultural arts. Using these tools as a vehicle of transmission, the Haskell Cultural Center and Museum truthfully conveys the story of Haskell’s remarkable evolution from a government boarding school to its present day fully accredited University status.
The Haskell Cultural Center and Museum celebrates the living heritage and culture of all tribal peoples and strives to continue the legacy of education.
