The Museum features an extensive Native American collection and exhibits include clothing, accessories, fans, pottery, pipes, weapons, kachinas, jewelry and archaeological artifacts from ten cultural regions of North America.

In 2019, blankets from the Buell Manufacturing Company of St. Joseph, which was incorporated in 1877, were added to the collection the exhibit gallery. The Buell Woolen Mill was the primary source for blankets headed west and they were known for quality. The strickingly colorful designs were based on patterns used by different native tribes in paintings and beadwork.
