Nearby is a striking Navajo transitional blanket and over here is a handsome Sioux dress.

On the walls are Navajo textiles: Teec Nos Pos, Crystals. Yeis, Ganados. On the shelves you see baskets, kachinas, and pots. Baskets from California, the Southwest and other areas demonstrate the wonderful weaving of tribes such as the Pomo, Paiute, Apache, Pima, Klamath, Hupa, Karok and Tlingit. Many pots from San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Acoma, Laguna and other pueblos show their beauty.
