This week, Ann-Christine leads LAPC –Favorite Finds. A-C encourages us to share our finds, from grandmother’s closet to museum, nature, and more.
I found beautiful and unique collections at the Indian Museum of North America in the Crazy Horse Memorial, South Dakota.
This beautiful breechclout aprons was given to the donor’s mother in the early 1900:
The Indian Museum has about the same annual visitation as the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. Close to 90% of the art and artifacts have been donated by generous individuals, including many Native Americans.
Native artists from throughout North America spend much of the summer at Crazy Horse to share their creativity, create new works.
The Museum, designed to complement the story being told in stone on the Mountain, presents the lives of American Indians and preserves Native Culture for future generations.
At the museum, I bought a horse hair pottery made by Navajo Artist. These are the stoneware collection:
