One of a series of monographs published by the Nonprofit Finance Fund on the Ford Foundation's New Directions/New Donors for the Arts initiative, this publication documents the decades of collaboration that led to the planning of the National Museum of the American Indian, and how this work has led to a redefining of museum practices for the management of culturally sensitive materials.
