Stop At:

The American Indian Galleries at St. Joseph Museum introduces visitors to the natural, cultural, and Native American influences that remain important in the current world. A great many items in the Gallery are part of the Harry L. George collection. From 1904 to 1923, George amassed one of the largest collections of Native American items in the world at a time when their way of life was dramatically changing. In doing so, he preserved a huge portion of their material culture. He acquired thousands of objects that the Native Americans used and made for trade and kept detailed records on each item. His meticulous research and huge collection allows the Museum to include Native American items from the ten cultural areas of North America. Featured exhibits include pottery, cradleboards, masks, items from the Lakota Nation, and archaeological pieces. Young visitors can enjoy a hands-on experience in the archaeological dig area.
