Southern Plains Indian Museum The Southern Plains Indian Museum exhibits the creative achievements of Native American artists and craftsmen of the United States. A permanent exhibit presents the rich diversity of historic arts of the tribal peoples of western Oklahoma, and a special exhibition gallery is devoted to changing presentations promoting the creative works of outstandingly talented contemporary Native American artists and craftsmen.

The Museum's sales shop, which offers a wide variety of authentic, contemporary native American arts and crafts products, is operated by the Oklahoma Indian Arts and Crafts cooperative, an independent business enterprise owned and managed by Indian artists and craftsmen.

The southern Plains Indian Museum was found in 1947-48 through joint cooperation of the Federal and Oklahoma State governments. The Museum program is administered by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, an independent Federal agency located in the U.S. Department of the Interior, whose purpose is to promote the development of contemporary Native American arts of the United States.
