She decided to open Southern Apache Museum (SAM) when she recognized a need to educate the general public on the invisible Native American Indian population in Houston. Southern Apache Museum was born Jan. 2012 at the Northwest Mall in Houston TX. The mall closed down in 2017 and is now one of three proposed sites for the bullet train that will go from Houston to Dallas in 30 minutes.
The Native American Indian community is in the process of looking for another building to house their community center. They are working hard to raise money to have the virtual museum at apache museum.org become a realty and will be a permanent home in Houston for all Indigenous people.
