Another way of saying "What happened to our traditions?," this exhibition explores the social, political, cultural, and personal changes that Native Americans of North America have experienced in the last century through 25 historical pieces, including a circa 1850 steamboat pipe, from the Museum's collection along with 41 contemporary works by Native artists.

Presented in conjunction with Atlatl, a Native arts organization based in Phoenix, Arizona.
