This vast collection of Plateau beadwork from the Fred L. Mitchell Collection features a variety of beaded pieces including bags, vests, gauntlets, and horse regalia, all of which celebrate the importance of the horse and demonstrate the affection Plateau Tribes had for their horses. Additional pieces have been added to the exhibit by local Tribal members and Tamástslikt Cultural Institute making this exhibition truly impressive. The Mitchell Collection is the result of a lifetime of collecting Plateau beadwork by Fred L. Mitchell of Walla Walla, WA. You will marvel at the brilliant colors, superior craftsmanship, and range of emotions these pieces evoke.
