Descriptive UO TitleLee Moorhouse collection of Indian costumes and artifacts
General NotesA wood-framed structure, covered with a striped tent cloth, appears to have three wooden walls and a wooden floor. From the open side, one can see that the tent structure is filled with an assortment of Native American objects and artifacts, suspended from the walls and crossbeam, set on a table, and arranged on the floor in front of the back wall. There is a sign on the tent that says "Major Moorhouse's Indian Pictures." The inventory includes: blankets and other woven textiles; photographs, some framed; beaded bags; baskets; a cradleboard; a saddle and bridle; tomahawks; bow and arrows in a quiver; a buckskin dress with beaded fringe; a beaded buckskin shirt and pants, a pair of beaded moccasins, and a feathered cape, displayed together as an ensemble; a small statue of a Native American man, wearing a feathered robe and headdress, a shell necklace, a beaded breastplate, and beaded moccasins; more feathered headdresses and other feathered and beaded items; a pair of beaded gloves; a beaded necklace; a pile of fur (under the table).
