The MHA Nation Cultural Interpretive Center is where visitors can learn about the culture and history of the three distinct Tribal nations that comprise the Three Affiliated Tribes, the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara. The facility is centered around a design mimicking an Earth Lodge structure. The circular central commons area of the building is meant for flexible use while the ancillary spaces around the perimeter can be used for meetings, ceremonies, and demonstrations. The location and design elements allow for the building to be highly energy efficient and includes archival space for historic artifacts.
