Visit the Alcoa Foundation Hall of American Indians at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History

by The 100 Companies

The Alcoa Foundation Hall of American Indians, a permanent museum exhibit, highlights the contemporary lives (mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries) of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas – particularly the Iroquois of the Allegheny Valley – and their connection to both the natural world and Pittsburgh’s steel industry.

Nearly 1,000 historical and contemporary artifacts are on display, including artwork and traditional garments. Kids will love the opportunity to touch a real buffalo, grind corn and view the collection of Hopi Katsina dolls given to young girls, which represent spirit guides who visit the Hopi for six months of the year.
