Southwest Museum Supporters Protest Autry’s Handling Of American Indian Artifacts

CBS Los Angeles, November 12, 2013

MOUNT WASHINGTON ( — The Friends of the Southwest Museum Coalition on Tuesday protested the management of a local American Indian museum.

Supporters claims the Autry National Center has stiffed taxpayers by spending millions of dollars on the Southwest Museum while giving taxpayers very little in return for their generous investment.

The Autry acquired the museum, along with its collection of Native American artifacts, in 2003.

Supporters say the museum is hardly open, and the Autry has not delivered on its promise to restore the exhibit to its original state.
