This exhibition explored the various ways Native American people incorporated animals into their lives. The exhibition also examines three additional elements. It investigates how the introduction of domesticated animals, the influence of new materials, and the contact with tourist trade have impacted the Native American culture. These elements, isolated or combined, affected the continual evolution of Native American art objects. Each of the pieces in this the exhibition reveals the visible link between Native American people and their relationship with the natural world.
