This exhibition traces the history of Native Americans as buffalo hunters, horsemen, ranchers and cowboys, and as entertainers and participants in the sport of rodeo. On view are more than 700 objects, including saddles, photographs, blankets, clothing, horse gear, and powwow regalia. Highlights include a late 19th-century rifle case embellished with porcupine quill embroidery, an elaborately beaded Kootenai cradle board, a buffalo hunter's outfit decorated with glass beads and embroidery, and an elegant horse dance stick.
