Following 36 CFR 79, federal collections shall be curated by a repository meeting the Department of the Interior or the American Association of Museums standards. The Museaum of Northern Arizona (MNA) meets these standards.

The collections were deposited with MNA in the 1950s, and under the terms of the original agreements between the United States (National Park Service) and the MNA, they were stipulated to “retain” the collection in perpetuity.
