Native American baskets at Clark County Museum

Jun 8, 2015

A collection of more than 100 baskets hand made by Southern Paiute Indians and other regional Native American tribes will be on display at the Clark County Museum through June 30.

The baskets were created in Southern Nevada by Las Vegas Paiute, Moapa Paiute, Chemehuevi, and Panamint Shoshone Indians between 1880 and 1930. Some baskets have been on display in the museum over the years, but "Tribal Treasures" marks the first time the museum's entire collection has been shown in one exhibit. The museum's collection of more than 70 Southern Paiute baskets from the late 1880s to early 1900s is the largest of its kind in public hands.

The Clark County Museum is located at 1830 South Boulder Highway. Admission is $2, $1 for children and seniors. Their website here.
