Westward expansion was driven, in large part, by railroad travel that could take visitors from coast to coast quickly and conveniently. Along with that expansion came demand for Southwest Native American pieces used not for ceremony or for cooking, but strictly for trade. “Made for the Tourist Trade” is a collaboration between the University of Northern Colorado’s Anthropology Department and City of Greeley Museums staff which showcases pieces originally housed in a university museum that closed in the 1980s. This exhibit showcases the history of that museum and nearly 20 pieces from its original collection.
