Pre-Columbian (before 1500)

The museum's collection of historic Native American materials is especially strong in pottery, baskets, beadwork, clothing, and personal accoutrements dating primarily from the second half of the nineteenth century through the early twentieth century. Here too, a significant number of these objects came to the museum by way of gifts, including the Frank C. and Clara G. Churchill Collection of almost 1,400 objects, the Glover Street Hastings III collection of about 280 objects, the Guido R. Rahr Sr. Collection of almost 250 objects mainly from the Plains and Northern Woodlands regions, and the gift of almost 200 dolls from the Barbara Wellington Wells Collection.
