Room 7 – Artifacts/Gallery

 

Artifacts

In Memory of Shorty Reidhead, who gifted his personal collection to the Show Low Museum. The collections feature Native American tribes from the Four Corner region. The four states are AZ, NM, CO, and UT, all touching at their corners at one point. Other artifacts include various kachinas, matates, shell, & arrowhead collections, various sand & oil paintings. Many of the displayed items would have been used in everyday life for the respective Indian tribes. Some were utilitarian, others were for ceremonial purposes. Written information of early pioneer missionaries that provided services on the near by Indian reservations. Maps of surrounding Indian reservations, symbols and their meanings included.
