Stauth Memorial Museum of Montezuma is showcasing Native American quilts in its current exhibit “To Honor and Comfort: Native Quilting Traditions.”
The exhibit includes 29 quilts from throughout the country, including examples by Cherokee, Sioux, Navajo, Ojibway and Native Hawaiian quilters. Ten Kansas quilts also are on display to enhance the exhibition and to showcase the talent and creativity of Kansas quilters from Dodge City, Spearville, Jetmore, Sublette, Kinsley and Liberal.
Other exhibit components include hands-on activities, a listening station where visitors can hear tape-recorded stories from some of the quilters, videos of quilting activities in two Native communities, and a series of panels with photographs and explanatory text.
The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 30.
