Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum Opened A Can’t Miss Display!
Memorial Day would be the perfect day to stop by the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. Not only are they kicking off their summer hours, being open every Monday, but they've added can't miss items to their latest display.
The Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum's exhibit, Native Lifeways of the Plains, seeks to highlight the lives and stories of a diverse group of native peoples through time and going through the present. Their collection of items on display is impressive.
We are very excited to share that Quanah Parker's headdress and lance will be on display starting this weekend. This set has been resting in our collection and is back and viewable to the public. This headdress is part of our newest exhibit, "Native Lifeways of the Plains" which pulls from PPHM's own ethnology collection to showcase the material culture of the indigenous people of the Great Plains. This exhibit will be open to the public this Saturday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend.
Items include a Kiowa calendar, a recently conserved breastplate, and a key highlight is the headdress worn by Quanah Parker along with his lance. The exhibit will be on display through May of 2019. Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum's summer hours begin on Memorial Day. They will be open seven days a week through the summer months, and they invite us all to celebrate their first open Monday this Memorial Day.
On a day of remembrance, a great way to celebrate would be to stop by the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum and check out their latest display on the traditional lifeways of native peoples.
