Visitors will see a variety of elaborately decorated objects, including moccasins, personal adornments, toys, weapons, and leather bags, that demonstrate the skillful use of feathers, paints, porcupine quills, horse hair, and various trade goods such as glass beads and bells.  First-rate, American Indian-made items collected over the years by a local Casper family and recently donated to Fort Caspar Museum make up the majority of this incredible exhibit.
