The IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe just received its largest donation ever.

The $3 million unrestricted donation comes from MacKenzie Scott and her husband Dan Jewett, and was among the 286 gifts to help change the narrative about people struggling against inequities. The gift follows a $1.7 million grant from the Ford Foundation in 2020.
