The Eastern Woodlands is a cultural area of the indigenous people of North America, consisting of tribes inhabiting the United States and Canada, east of the Mississippi. Though their region was vast, the people of Eastern Woodland tribes lived in similar ways, and their art and artifacts are a reflection of their deep-rooted culture, still evident through their descendants. This exhibit of art, artifacts, carvings, portraits, and tribal dress of the Eastern Woodlands people celebrates the artistic skills they shared as a people. Exhibit curated by Jamie Reason.
