McCormack Landscape Architecture is the landscape architect for the 68-acre Landscape Master Plan for this artifact repository and museum for the Gila River Indian Community of Sacaton, Arizona. The Landscape Master Plan identified opportunities to design several literal and abstract landscape features that reflect the ancient villages of the extinct Huhugam people, who are the distantly related ancestors of the Gila River people. The Landscape Master Plan included botanical gardens, canals, interpretive walks, outdoor interpretive displays and a tribal nursery where visitors can purchase native plants grown by local tribal members. MLA completed the Landscape Master Plan in 1999 for the 68-acre site.
