The exhibition Warriors of the Plains: 200 Years of Native North American Ritual and Honour explores the ongoing legacy of the warrior figure among contemporary Native North Americans.
The exhibition highlights cultural continuity in a long and established warrior tradition among Plains Indian peoples as it is told through the objects on display.
It narrates the evolution of past ritual and military objects and regalia from ceremonial accoutrements and objects of social status to symbols of ethnicity and national pride for the people of today.
The exhibition is entirely based on the British Museum North American collections.
