To Honor and Comfort: Native Quilting Traditions

October 19, 1997–January 4, 1998

George Gustav Heye Center, New York

This exhibition, co-organized by NMAI and the Michigan State University Museum, explores the importance of quilt-making in Native Hawaiian and North American Indian communities. The work of Native quilters is deeply rooted in their cultural heritage, yet also reflects individual ideas or visions. The wide variety of quilts in this show provide a deeper understanding of Native life in the 20th century.
