Regalia on Display During American Indian Heritage Week

As a part of the University of Montana's American Indian Heritage week, a regalia exhibit is on display at the Payne Native American Center.

Academic Advisor Michelle Guzman spoke with KPAX.COM about the exhibit.

“The little outfits will get passed to another sibling or to their own kids. I have my bead work that my grandmother made when I was a child,” Guzman said. “All my sisters have worn it, my cousins have worn it and my daughter wore it. It came back to me after everybody because bead work takes a long time.”

The regalia exhibit is open to the public and will be on display until the end of this week at the Payne Family Native American Center in Missoula, Montana. The Native American Center is located on the southwest corner of the Oval, in between the Grizzly statue and the Math building.
