Apache History

Baskets made of sweetgrass are included, and two cradle boards—one very old, and another made only a couple of years ago—are on display.

The museum’s “Mountain Spirit Dancer” display begins with a painting by famed Chiricahua Apache artist Allan Hauser, followed by a drawing and a sculpture by Harlyn Geronimo, as well as a “computerized” version—an excellent example of cultural history shown in an effective timeline display.
