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