Episode 46: A collection like no other, a conversation with Charlotte Buchanan-Yale from the Museum of Native American History in Bentonville

About the Show:

In this episode, we sit down with Charlotte Buchanan-Yale, Director of the Museum of Native American History in Bentonville. Charlotte takes us through the museum, how it got started with the vision of one man, entrepreneur David Bogle, and how it has slowly built up a following over the years.  

Don’t let this museum fool you. They take a deep dive into 14,000 years of Native American history throughout the Americas. There is so much to learn about the influence of Native Americans in Northwest Arkansas and the museum captures it so beautifully through a variety of artifacts including pottery, painted animal hides, clothing, and the huge skeletal remains of a Wooly Mammoth that actually used to graze in what is now present-day Arkansas among other parts of the U.S.  

There is so much to learn about this museum from this episode but we encourage you to listen and then visit so that you can truly take in what is an incredible experience. 

And, if you are not happy with your visit we will refund your entrance fee to the museum. Actually, the museum is 100% FREE to visit. That’s right, no cost, for such an amazing collection. The next time you are in Bentonville or driving up or down Interstate 49 please take a detour to visit the Museum of Native American History or MONAH as we like to call it.  You will not be disappointed. 

All of this and more on this episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.
