The collection of works from the Plateau region is relatively small compared to other Native American collections at the Hood Museum of Art. Consisting of a little over one hundred mostly historic objects, this collection was greatly defined by gifts from Frank C. and Clara G. Churchill, Mr. and Mrs. George H. Browne, and Guido R. Rahr Sr. It includes baskets, clothing, personal adornment items, and accoutrements. Also from this region is a selection from the Wellington Collection of Indian Dolls, stone blades and knives from the collection of Alexis Chapman Proctor, Class of 1918, and a beaded Modoc vest, given as a bequest by the anthropologist Michael A. Dorris, chairman of the Native American Studies Program at Dartmouth College when it was founded in 1972.
