Funding for this project supported an aspect of the June 4-7, 2012 International Conference of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums in Tulsa, Oklahoma and provided professional development opportunities for Native artists.

The day-long pre-conference featured sessions tailored to the business development needs of artists and authors including marketing strategies, copyright, and licensing training, working with galleries/publishers/collectors, as well as sessions that featured model programs highlighting library and museum support for local artists and authors in exhibit development and presentations. All the sessions provided extensive resources to ensure attendees gained practical skills.
