On January 24, 2004, the Gila River Indian Community opened arguably the nation’s finest tribal facility for the preservation and display of important cultural artifacts and art.


The Huhugam Heritage Center serves many functions:

  • a climate-controlled repository for prehistoric and historic artifacts, cultural materials and vital records
  • a museum to display these materials to the public
  • a center for research by tribal members; a space to exhibit traveling art and history showsand a gathering place for both


--Effective May 9, 2018, the Huhugam Heritage Center (HHC) will close the Museum building to prepare for the start of the Tenant Improvement Project, which will add 6,000 square feet of exhibit space. This addition will be devoted to Our story: the story of the Gila River Indian Community.  Although, the museum will remain closed for the duration of the project, when feasible we will continue to have programs & events on-site. We would also like to bring our programs and exhibits to our Districts and Urban Members. Thank you for your support, your kind words and encouragement mean a great deal to us! We look forward to what the future will bring for the Huhugam Heritage Center.--
