Highlights of the Trinidad Museum’s Basket Collections

The current exhibition in our Native American Room features highlights from the museum’s basket collections. This includes caps from our extensive collection featuring our finest basket, the Queen James woman’s ceremonial cap. In the large case we have displayed some of our most outstanding storage & gathering baskets as well as baby baskets, gift baskets, a wolf skin head band, and a Jump Dance basket. Our other semi-permanent exhibitions of the Tsurai village model, fishing nets and baskets, and women’s dresses are also on display. Our Baskets for the Trade exhibit, planned for March of 2012, will expand on pieces from the current show.

On Display Until April 2012
