Check out our Anthropology Department volunteers at the Tesoro Cultural Center's 11th Annual Indian Market Powwow on May 14 and 15. The event will be going on from 10 am to 5 pm during both days and will be held at The Fort in Morrison, CO. Seven dedicated and knowledgeable Anthropology volunteers will be working three tables of Native American ethnographic items from the DMNS Education Collections between 11 am and 3 pm both days. They will be showing many different items including a beautiful Lakota beaded cradleboard, a Miccosukee doll, a silver and turquoise inlay amulet from Santo Domingo, and Cree beaded mittens. Not only will the volunteers be showing the collections but they will also be talking about different decorative techniques such as beading, quillwork, applique, silverwork, and caribou hair tufting. A handout describing the major techniques will be offered to each visitor. We look forward to seeing you there!
