Enduring Legacies of the Great Plains: The Paul Dyck Collection

Planning for a traveling exhibition, a catalog, and programs on Plains Indian cultures as documented in a collection of materials from the pre-reservation and early reservation periods.

The Buffalo Bill Historical Center will present "Enduring Legacies of the Great Plains: The Paul Dyck Collection," a national touring exhibition, catalogue, and accompanying interpretive educational materials and programming that focuses on the arts, cultures, and lives of Native people of the Plains as revealed through the Paul Dyck Plains Indian Buffalo Culture Collection. This collection has long been considered by scholars of Native American art to be one of the most comprehensive privately held assemblages of pre-reservation and early reservation arts and related historical materials documenting the lives and cultures of the Native people of the Great Plains. Planning for the exhibition will involve consultation with a team consisting of humanities scholars, an educator, an exhibition designer, Plains Indian Museum Advisory Board members, and Museum staff. This team will create, develop, evaluate, and refine all aspects of the exhibition, catalogue, and programming.
