III: Plains Indians2017-03-30T20:22:19+00:00

Project Description

With the help of Twig Johnson, curator of Native American collections at the Montclair Art Museum, we were able to develop our most popular special collections, “The Kathy Reiss Memorial Native American Collections”. The objects in this collection are representative of what the Plains Indian tribes would have used in their daily lives.

Consider making a miniature tipi or a parfleche bag with the children!
