This museum is much more than a collection of artifacts or art - it is a trip back in time that tells the rich history of a people who are still here - alive and well - and the museum shows you why.

I was surprised at what an interesting and exciting museum this is. It brings to life the culture and history of this important Indian tribe. It also brings to life the atrocities that the Native Americans suffered.
