American Indian

The Morris Museum is home to a wide variety of ethnographic materials representing numerous American Indian tribes throughout the United States. This gallery dedicated to our Native People exhibits some of the finest artifacts from North America, housed in color-coded cases to assist visitors in developing a geographic context for the pieces on display.

Visitors can examine bead and quill work, pottery, carving, basketry and textiles from the Northeast Woodlands, the Southwest, the American Plains, and the Pacific Northwest Coast, including an array of artifacts from the Captain William Philo Clark Collection.
