dc.description.abstractEcomuseums, which reflect the heritage of places, can be an important model for advancing the relationship between tourism, heritage, and local development. This paper examines the relationship between an ecomuseum and development in the context of the Ak-Chin Him-Dak Ecomuseum in Arizona, the only officially designated ecomuseum in the United States. Based on a case study approach, the study indicates that the Ak-Chin Him-Dak Ecomuseum has several features that differentiate it from many other ecomuseums around the world. Unlike some other examples, the Ak-Chin Him-Dak Ecomuseum’s primary aim is to ensure cultural revitalization and social development based on the native tribe’s unique needs. The relationship with tourism is limited, and utilizing the ecomuseum as an economic driver was not a consideration. In this case, the ecomuseum was conceived as an educational tool to aid residents in rediscovering their unique heritage, preserving elements of the past that are on the verge of disappearing, and advancing the social wellbeing of the community.en_US
