Native American Collection Study Center a Key Reource for Student and Community

"Pomona's Native American Collection is a Key Resource for Students and the Community," by Sneha Abraham for Pomona College News

Pomona College offers unique and intimate access to approximately 6,000 original works of Native American art for study and close observation. The vast collection, curated by the Pomona College Museum of Art and housed in a new space in the lower level of Bridges Auditorium, contains an array of artifacts, ranging from baskets to a feather headdress, in a beautiful storage and display space that includes a smart classroom and room to accommodate large groups.

The Native American Collection Study Center (NACSC) is used in college courses such as Environmental Analysis Professor Char Miller’s Water in the West class, a course that deals with the various ways native peoples incorporated water into their lives.
