A Great Place to Admire American Indian Artistry
This place is something special. From its classic exterior to its beautiful galleries, remarkable collection and special events, the Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Art provides a venue in which the American Indian is given deserved credit for artistry, intelligence and cultural integrity. The Heard has 10 excellent galleries and a collection of 39,000 items. The star of the show is "HOME: Native People in the Southwest," the gallery that beautifully displays the best of the Heard's collection--pottery, jewelry, Kachina dolls, baskets, clothing, drums, ceremonial belts, cradle boards, a Navajo hogan and much more. In the "We Are! Arizona's First People" gallery, the stories of 21 Arizona tribes are poignantly told from a first-person perspective, to enable non-Indians to better understand what these cultures face today.
