At the core of the Museum is one of the Southwest's premier collections of Navajo and Hopi pre-1940s textiles, including displays of chief's blankets, Navajo saddle blankets
, optical art textiles and Yei weavings.
Joe and his wife, Leah, have an extensive collection that includes windmill weights, rifles, spurs, vintage utensils and Navajo saddle blankets
Jeweled bridles and daggers, ancient embroidered saddle blankets
, pottery, glassware and ancient texts paint a complete picture of cultural influence.
I've found sleeping bags, blankets, pillows (good for puppies), camp stoves, lanterns, fishing poles, cases of food, beer, pop, groceries, tires off of boats, spare tires, semi-truck tires with rims, hub caps (they make great dog dishes), nuts, bolts, springs and parts off of trailers (some off our vehicles), fan belts, tools, a level (not broken), trailer hitch receivers, trailer balls, boat anchors, ropes, saddle blankets
, dog dishes, a Levi jacket, windbreakers, caps, shoes, hats, hard hats, sunglasses, DPS hat (Smokey the bear) and one real nice leather jacket (after the bike run), wallets (nothing in them), children's toys, and stuffed animals (washed and given to thrift stores).
