Across the United States, there are a number of museums and exhibits that focus on Native American cultures. Some focus on history, some focus on archaeology, and some focus on art. These seven great museums all seek innovative ways to creatively express Native American narratives through their collections. All of these museums both inform and express beauty.
The Heard Museum has over 40,000 pieces, which focus on the Southwest and contemporary art from North America. The museum’s stable exhibit, HOME: Native People in the Southwest combines objects and narratives to create a rich story, and it contains a number of cultural items, including jewelry and Hopi katsina dolls. One current exhibit, Loloma: Expressions in Metal, Ink and Clay, depicts the artistic prowess of one Hopi man, Charles Loloma. Featuring jewelry and pottery, Loloma’s art shows the impressive designs of the Hopi.
