Collection of Native American artifacts from the late 19th century (early reservation period). The objects primarily originate from the Lakota Sioux, with possible additional attributions to the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Assiniboine, Crow, Blackfoot, Shoshone, Kiowa and Comanche nations. This website serves the purpose of sharing with the general public the great beauty, artistry and craftsmanship. The objective of this collection is that the objects shown have actually been used by their original owners and thus the resulting wear and tear is visible.
