New York, NY

Legends of Our Times traces the history of Native people as buffalo hunters, horsemen, ranchers, cowboys, and as entertainers and participants in the sport of rodeo. With 700 objects, including saddles, blankets, clothing, and horse equipment, the exhibition presents the connections between traditional Plains and Plateau cultures and animals like the horse, buffalo, and dog—and how these connections influenced the Native cowboy's perspective on ranching and rodeo life.
