The new exhibition organized by the Hermann Geiger Cultural Foundation, Natives. Trailing the peoples of the Great Plains, intends to raise awareness of the history and cultures of Plains Native Americans, with a special focus on the Lakota Sioux Nation.
By displaying valuable ethnographic materials from international museums and private collections, the exhibition presents to the public a reconstruction of the traditional Native American way of life before the establishment of Indian reservations, and describes the organization of society as well as the composition of tribes and villages.
In the framework of the exhibition, the Geiger Foundation has organized a programme of lectures on several topics related to Native North American lifestyles and cultures.
