The Arab American National Museum in Detroit - DISPELLING misconceptions about Arab Americans and other minorities.
The Arab American National Museum (AANM) is the first and only museum in the United States devoted to Arab American history and culture. Arab Americans have enriched the economic, political and cultural landscape of American life. By bringing the voices and faces of Arab Americans to mainstream audiences, we continue our commitment to dispel misconceptions about Arab Americans and other minorities. Since opening in 2005, the Museum has shed light on the shared experiences of immigrants and ethnic groups, paying tribute to the diversity of our nation.
The Arab American National Museum documents, preserves and presents the history, culture and contributions of Arab Americans.

A journey through the Sahara, From Marrakech to Timbuktu
In recent years, the Tiskiwin Museum has focused on the presentation of the material culture of the Berber populations of Saharan origin. These populations are commonly called Berbers north of the Sahara and Tuaregs in the south, but they call themselves Imazighen (Amazigh sing) The permanent exhibition is conceived as a journey on the old caravan trails linking North Africa to the Sahel.
It has as theme and guiding thread the Art of the Set On the itinerary followed the traveler visitor meets the different populations at times of their social life - festivities, weekly markets - when each individual deals more specifically with the image that he wants to give of himself. It does so primarily with the help of body care and trimmings. These are part of a codified language which informs about the "tribal" belonging and the social status of the person who carries them, but leaves to the individual a margin of freedom which allows him to affirm his personality.
The study of forms and techniques used in ornaments often reveals aspects of the history of these populations that neither written sources nor oral traditions mention. In each of the ten stages are also presented objects or elements of architecture that are part of the interior decoration of the habitat. The form of this is determined by the way of life of the inhabitants (nomadic or sedentary) Materials for the realization of objects or the construction of habitat are often the products of agriculture and livestock (leather, wool, millet stems), next to materials taken in the natural environment.
