Tahnee Ahtoneharjo-Growingthunder serves many roles in the arts as a museum advisor, curator, and administrator. Well versed in tribal relations and Native art, Tahnee attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (Museology), Harvard University (Museum Studies and Non-profit Business Management), and working towards completing her PhD at Swansea University “International Diplomacy through Sovereign Relations with the United States Tribal Nations and Museum Practice.”

Tahnee’s research cultivates dialogues for Native American Art where her work produces projects that encourage conversations between scholarly and non-scholarly audiences, and that present current artistic practices as a communal experience of art rather than inaccessible objects. Tahnee strives to bridge the gaps in museums by presenting new narratives from the public perspective, and through authentic representation. Her preferred research collections include twenty and twenty-first-century textile design, Plains, and Woodland cultures. Her contribution to the museum field serves institutions of the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
