Native Lifeways of the Plains

May 2018 (closing date TBD)

The exhibition draws principally from the museum’s ethnology collection to showcase the material culture of the indigenous people of the Great Plains. Among the key artifacts featured are Quanah Parker’s headdress and lance, the Kiowa calendar, and a recently conserved breastplate dating circa 1880. Select pieces from the museum’s art and photographic collections are included to help contextualize the objects within the scope of traditional lifeways.

"One of the goals of Native Lifeways of the Plains is to tell the stories of diverse groups of native peoples throughout time and to continue those stories to the present,” said Dr. Veronica Arias, curator of the exhibit.
