Planning for a traveling exhibition, a catalog, and supporting educational and public programs examining the Native American tipi as a center of Plains Indian culture.

The Brooklyn Museum seeks support for the planning of *If These Walls Could Talk: The Native American Plains Tipi* (working title), a major exhibition that will be presented at the Museum in Fall 2009 and at other venues thereafter. Drawing on the Museum's distinguished holdings of Plains Native material as well as loans from other collections, this will be the first major exhibition to take the tipi as its primary subject, and as a means of understanding Plains Native culture. The exhibition will encompass more than 150 objects, including several full-scale tipis. The project is being planned in cooperation with members of the Plains Native community. A Planning Grant from the NEH would support two day-long planning meetings with humanities consultants at the Brooklyn Museum.
