Paths of Life: American Indians of the Southwest



View of the Yoeme section of the Paths of Life exhibit


This exhibit, through extensive consultations with tribal representatives, explores the origins, histories, and contemporary lifeways of the 10 Native culture groups of the region (northern Mexico to northern Arizona) in a fascinating mix of life-size dioramas, prehistoric artifacts, and historic objects: Seri, Tarahumara, Yaqui, Tohono O'odham, Colorado River Yumans, Southern Paiute, Pai, Apache, Hopi, and Navajo.
