Additional Details:
In the Indian Building at Albuquerque are old blankets and serapes, old alter cloths and tapestries, relics from old churches and ancient mission bells - memories of the romantic past - as well as more modern things. Scientific men say the collection here is one of the most interesting in the country. The Thunder Bird over the mantle piece is one of the most frequently encountered symbols of Indian mythology. It is the symbol of the lightening, the thunder and the rain, signifying to the primitive people of the arid Southwest all things beneficent and kind, and an enduring talisman of good fortune
