Drum: Singing for the People
As the drum is set up the men start to gather metal folding chairs, moving them in to position to surround the drum, each man clearing his throat and testing the sound of the drum, they prepare to sing for the people.
The drums selected from the permanent collection have been chosen to show to variety and the innovation of the people who have made them.
Moccasins: Where They Have Gone
Tracing the outline of a foot, measuring the width, making a pattern, cutting it out and placing it on leather. Cutting leather, design making and sewing patterns together the maker of the moccasin thinks of who will be wearing this, were they will go and the adventures they will have.
The moccasins selected from the permanent collection have been chosen to show the variety and innovation of the people who have made them.
As The Heritage Center actively collects works of art from around the country, we try to capture the atmosphere of that year. We are always in awe of the abilities of artists and their talents to develop new works for us to enjoy.
Every year we like to show off the new works artists have created and we have purchased. On display here in the middle gallery are those purchased in the last twelve to eighteen months.
