On display in the Aaittafama' Room Mar. 19 through Sept. 2, this new cross-cultural exhibit celebrates stylistic and cultural diversity within Native pottery-making and features historic Pueblo pottery from the Keres language family and modern pottery from Five Tribes artists. From a Laguna water jar hand-crafted in 1880, to a Chickasaw effigy pot shaped like a bear, come experience the artistic cultural expression of these past and present Native potters. 

This exhibit is a partnership with the Indian Arts Research Center at the School for Advanced Research and the Museum of the Red River.
