The mission of the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is to conduct scientific investigations to preserve and develop a greater understanding and appreciation of natural resources and human cultural heritage. The collections form a basis for the continuing reappraisal of human knowledge of the past, present, and future. Acquisitions provide a means of strengthening collections and enhancing their value for exhibition, education, and research purposes. Here you will find a selection of items recently acquired by the Ethnology Department. Enjoy!
