Mission Statement:
The mission of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology is to inspire appreciation for and knowledge of the diverse native arts, histories, languages, and cultures of the Greater Southwest.

Vision Statement:

We have an integrated, effective staff who perform our mission with high morale and dedication through effective teamwork and sharing responsibility for projects.

Our state-of-the-art-exhibits continue to excite and inspire people to learn more about Native cultures and the anthropology and archaeology of the Greater Southwest.

We are viewed as a leader in our field resulting in increased recognition by international scholars, our funders, our stakeholders, accrediting agencies, and other museums.

We strive to improve our facilities and increase access through the digitization of our collections and the development of the Center for New Mexico Archaeology.

About Us:
The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, one of four museums in the Museum of New Mexico system, is a premier repository of Native art and material culture and tells the stories of the people of the Southwest from pre-history through contemporary art. The museum serves a diverse, multicultural audience through changing exhibitions, public lectures, field trips, artist residencies, and other educational programs.

More than 65,000 visitors come to the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture each year, of which 30% hail from New Mexico, 50% from other states, and 20% from foreign countries. It is MIAC's mission to provide cross-cultural education to the many visitors to Santa Fe who take part in our programs and to New Mexican residents throughout the state. It is especially important that MIAC serve the Indian communities in our state and throughout the Southwest whose contemporary and ancestral cultures are represented in the museum's collections.
