This event has ended.

The Plains Indian artists enriched the everyday lives of their community in a fashion that befitted the grandeur of their environment. When artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran visited the West and depicted the drama of the landscape as outsiders, the Native Americans, who lived within that dramatic landscape manifested its powerful beauty in their every day accoutrements. Nowhere is this more true than in the paraphernalia of war, an intrinsic part of Native culture at the time and an important indicator of tribal status.
