Contemporary

Contemporary focuses on objects that have been created within the past fifty years. Many of the objects reflect the various enterprises tribes have been able to partake in due to their sovereign state. Some of these objects are included in other areas as well due to their use (i.e. clothing, containers, etc.).

  • Some items have been determined, through consultation with American Indian elders, spiritual leaders, tribal officers or lineal descendants, to be culturally sensitive. Images of these items will not be displayed on this site or in the Collections Online database.
