Description: “As a Native American I know the majority of the cultural values within the U.S. The staff at the Coe introduced my fellow peers and I to the African collection and this was very exciting, yet curious. They had similar things to us Natives in the U.S and I wanted to see what we had in common. The item I decided to pick was the Gold Fulani earrings. I decided to pick these because all the Pueblos in New Mexico have a unique way of making earrings. The African style was so amazing because they were made out of pure gold, which was so beautiful to see.”
