The Coe has over 1,770 Native-American objects, spanning many years—from ages past to contemporary artists who interpret their rich heritages to tell their stories in their own unique voices. This is just a very small sample of what you can see at the Coe. Schedule a private tour or visit us on First Fridays (1 to 4 p.m). to hear the engaging stories behind the objects.
