The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.

This brain-tanned leather cuff is decorated with Dakota floral beadwork and metal. It was made by Holly Young, Standing Rock Dakota, during her time as a Minnesota Historical Society Native American Artist-in-Residence in 2015-16.
