An object can tell a story. Whether its the simple contours of cornhusk bag or the rich and intricate lines of glass beads on a hide dress, these items help tell the story of the Nez Perce. Over 200 items from the museum collection were photographed and assembled into a virtual museum. These photographs provide a glimpse into the rich culture and history of the Nez Perce.

The Plateau People's Portal also has excellent photos and information about the Spalding Allen Collection.
