It provides a learning center for Haskell students, faculty, and the public to understand more about Haskell’s diverse history. A gallery exhibits student and American Indian artwork and the grounds include a Veterans memorial and amphitheater.

The Cultural Center and Museum houses more than 2,000 items, among them are traditional clothing and headdresses, jewelry, baskets, pottery, beadwork, and art by a number of well known artists including Dick West, Don Secondine, Alan Houser, Danny Miller, Louis Shipshee, Allen Knowshisgun, Dorothy Nez, and Franklin Gritts, as well as artwork created by former and current Haskell students. The collections are cataloged into the Interior Collections Management System, a database for museum collections. The Cultural Center’s collections are managed by the U.S. Department of the Interior – Indian Affairs, and are available for research and study.
