Caring for American Indian Objects: A Practical and Cultural Guide



American Indian cultural objects, like most objects, deteriorate over time. Precious and irreplaceable pieces of a people’s heritage can turn to dust, either slowly or rapidly, depending upon their composition and the ways in which they are stored and handled.

This practical guide, with over 100 color and black-and-white photos, offers Indian and non-Indian caregivers, conservators, and collectors helpful information on standard museum practice to aid them in making decisions to slow deterioration.
