The Autry Institute
The Autry Institute promotes research and educational activities, encourages the development of pathbreaking scholarship, and reaches a broad audience through programs and publications.
The Libraries and Archives of the Autry provides access to one of the nation’s most comprehensive book, archival, and artifact collections on Native American cultures and the history of the American West through its two research libraries.
The Women of the West project at the Autry supports programs, exhibitions, collections, research, and education dedicated to diverse women’s experiences in the West.
Programs and Public Events produces a wide variety of lectures, workshops, symposia, plays, concerts, film series, artist demonstrations, and family festivals that augment our exhibitions and galleries.
The Institute currently offers three awards: the Maverick Prize, the Autry Public History Prize, and the Butcher Scholar Award.
Autry research fellowships are awarded annually to support scholarly projects in all areas of the study of the peoples and cultures of the American West.
