Despite living in Phoenix for a number of years, I had always heard how great this museum is but never had an opportunity to visit. We went today and it was very impressive. The docents were very informative and the displays were descriptive and we'll thought out. I was moved by the exhibit on Indian Boarding Schools.

The first exhibit on the local indigenous peoples and their attachment to the land is a good historical introduction with superb examples of the art. The display on the impact of boarding schools is moving, complete and oddly hopeful.

A required stop for anyone visiting Phoenix to get an overview of the indigenous people of Southwest U.S. Art and cultural samples are on display in the permanent exhibits while the grounds provide recognition of Native Americans in the military. Be sure to visit the special exhibits that change from year to year. These are usually artistic events. For historical perspective, be sure to go upstairs for an excellent overview about the role of boarding schools in Native American history and culture.

We spent several hours here on a Monday morning-afternoon and could have spent more. It is so detailed and extensive. Although I knew of the American Indian schools established by the Federal government in the late Nineteenth Century. However, I did not realize how extensive and brutal they were. This is a shameful past of our Anglo-Saxon culture that needs to be more publicized. The devastation of the Native American people is unbelievable and the Heard Museum does an excellent job of documenting this.

This was one of my choices for a short visit to Phoenix. I know very little about Indian culture and the struggles of the past. I have a new appreciation of both their art and their history. I spent time in the boarding school exhibit which I found disturbing, the way they were treated with no regard to their culture or family life. The art was very varied with both modern and traditional examples. The stores were great with a price range for everyone. This is well worth a visit. I am so glad I took time to visit.
