“Experience the everyday life of our ancestors”
The North Fork Mono Families first incorporated in 1966 to form the Sierra Mono Indian Museum, for the purpose of preserving their cultural heritage. Opened to the public in 1971, a visit to the museum offers an interactive glimpse at Mono Indian life of yesterday and today. Visitors can take a guided tour through the collections, hear Native stories and songs, or take a nature walk through indigenous plants to learn about their medicinal and nutritional properties. Language and basketry classes are also held throughout the year. The museum also has several permanent collections including a wide variety of Native American baskets and cultural artifacts, and more than 100 fascinating, freestanding taxidermy animals of North America and Asia in the Tettleton Wildlife Diorama Collection. Other collections include historical photographs, cultural items, bead-work and weaponry.
