**North American Ethnographic Collection**

Over 47,000 objects and textiles represent North American Indians from the Arctic and sub-Arctic, the Pacific Northwest, California, the Southwest, the Great Plains, and the Eastern Woodlands. During his early twentieth century fieldwork, curator Clark Wissler collected one thousand objects representing the material culture of the Plains Indian. The North American collection continues to grow with recent acquisitions of contemporary textiles, ceramics, basketry, jewelry, and Katsina figures.

Over 30,000 photographs, drawn from the holdings of the Western History and Genealogy Department at Denver Public Library, illuminate many aspects of the history of the American West. Most of the photographs were taken between 1860 and 1920. They illustrate Colorado towns and landscape, document the place of mining in the history of Colorado and the West, and show the lives of Native Americans from more than forty tribes living west of the Mississippi River.
