Disclaimer: The Field Museum's online Anthropology Collections Database may contain cultural items and historical records that are culturally sensitive. Some records may also include offensive language. These records do not reflect the Field Museum's current viewpoint but rather the social attitudes and circumstances of the time period when items were collected or cataloged. Visitors to this site are also advised that some records may contain names, images, and recordings of deceased individuals and that some records document human remains.
We welcome feedback. The web database is not a complete record of the Museum's anthropological holdings and documentation for a collection item will vary due to when and how it was collected as well as how recently it was accessed. While efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of the information available on this website, some content may contain errors. We work with descendant communities around the world to interpret the collections in order to promote a greater understanding of global heritage and, through consultation, will remove information that is inaccurate or inappropriate.
