Today is Indigenous Peoples Day, a day to celebrate living cultures. There are 562 federally recognized tribes in the United States today, and many more that are not federally recognized. In some cities and indigenous communities, today is celebrated with powwow. The powwow-related objects in the Spurlock collection primarily date to the early 20th century.
To see 21st century powwow regalia, please visit the Grass Dance regalia on display in Spurlock's North America: "People of the First Nations" exhibit.
