Indigenous communities often face cultural misrepresentation in educational areas such as museums. This report examines the manifestation of this problem within Puebloan architecture in New Mexico. The University of New Mexico’s Indigenous Design and Planning Institute seeks to address this issue by designing an interactive museum exhibit that emphasizes the meaning of Puebloan architecture. We outline our contribution to this initiative by giving historical background on the relevant Pueblos, their representation in museums, and technologies necessary to create an interactive exhibit. We built a partial exhibit prototype showcasing the physical, cultural, and influential aspects of the Old Zuni Mission through various platforms to present this information in a culturally accurate way.
