One of the Museum’s permanent exhibitions “A Regional Tour of American Indian Cultures” will take you through the major regions of the US and Canada and highlight the art and material culture of the tribes who live there.

The regions include: Woodlands, Plains, Southwest, Northwest Coast and California, and the Arctic/Sub-Arctic. While exploring each region, you will learn about: Housing, Transportation, Food, Clothing, Art, and Design.
