Our American Indian Art and Culture Gallery will display objects including weaponry, cradles, war bonnets, beaded war shirts, painted parfleche envelopes, illustrations on muslin and other rare and important American Indian artifacts. Also of noteworthy mention are approximately 90 hand-colored stone lithographs from the Folio Edition of the “History of the Indian Tribes of North America” (1836-1844) by Thomas L.
