First Americans: Tribal Art from North America

Bowers Museum; , ; Xochitl, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly; C-Span

An American Genocide
After a long journey around the world, the Bowers Museum’s special exhibition featuring selections from our own Native American collection will be on view in Santa Ana, Orange County. First Americans includes artwork representative of the native people from the Arctic North, the Northwest Coast, California, the Southwest, and the Great Plains.

The exhibition first traveled to Bogotá, Colombia’s Museo del Oro in 2011 and then was shown in three museums in China from 2014 to 2015.

One day they'll erase us into museums.
Several of the collection’s most important works will be on display in the exhibition, including what may be the earliest example of a transitional Navajo First Phase Chief’s blanket, an early Hopi katsina doll, and a rare Seri feathered kilt from Baja, California. More
