In Honor of the People

Museum Collections

In Honor of the People is a first step toward a virtual reunification of American Indian-made objects held at multiple institutions.

Episcopalian missionary Henry Whipple collected hundreds of cultural objects. Phase I of this project brings together nearly 500 items from the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Minnesota Historical Society.

We look forward to future submissions from individuals, libraries, and museums around the world.
