The Native American Museum of Art or NAMA is located on the Tuscarora Indian Reservation.  Our purpose is to create a world-class museum that brings to life Native American art and culture, particularly Iroquois and Tuscarora. It is our goal to promote the artists and artistry of Native American communities so that we can share our culture and foster a better understanding of Native American people through our art and interpretation.

NAMA is dedicated to strengthening, preserving and revitalizing Native American arts, languages and cultures. The museum is part of an effort to rebuild the economy through tourism and education. NAMA serves as a bridge between Tuscarora and its neighbors.

NAMA is currently located in the heart of the Smokin Joes Indian Trading Post retail Complex in a peaceful 3500 square-foot space dedicated to the arts. We also have an extensive Native American gift shop and an adjoining café to satisfy your appetite. Visit the Smokin Joes website for more details.
