Yellowstone County Museum – Rehousing Native American Collections

The Yellowstone County Museum will acquire archival materials to facilitate proper preservation of its Native American collection. This collection contains over 1,000 culturally significant objects from contemporary Montana-based tribes. Currently, over half of this collection is stored in non-archival boxes that are exposing objects to hazardous acids. While undergoing this collections care project, the cultural significance and affiliation of each artifact will be determined.
