The Amerind Museum
Established by archaeologist William Shirley Fulton in 1937, The Amerind Museum aims to preserve and protect the legacy and heritage of the indigenous cultures of the Americas through educational programs, lectures, and a collection of tools, art, and materials from a variety of native ethnic groups. Within the stately Spanish Colonial–revival building, visiting traditional artists and an ever-changing gallery foster a connection between the distant past and the present, teaching guests about the still-living cultures that have called the region home for millennia. The exhibits span across the centuries with artifacts and treasures from various peoples and times, captivating curious visitors with displays ranging from late prehistoric Pueblo pottery, Hopi katsina dolls, and even an Apache war bow constructed and signed by Geronimo himself. Even the museum's campus speaks to the storied past of the area, with views of Texas Canyon's breathtaking rock formations and secluded picnic spots amid the natural beauty and lively conversation of ancient granite boulders.
