Another reviewer said it best -- "not your typical tribe." The Smoki Museum is tucked away from Precott's main tourist area and is loaded with a spectacular collection of Native American artifacts. The Smoki Triibe is not a here-to-for unknown Native American group, but rather was a Prescott civic club of Anglo collectors and historians. The museum houses their collections and exhibits contemporary Native American artists. Be sure to view the interpretive videos running on continous loop discuss the sometimes troubled legacy of the club. The volunteer docents on site the day we visited fielded some hard questions with great knowledge and grace. And demonstrating their commitment to promote contemporary artists, the gift shop featured Pueblo pottery at remarkable prices! A delightful surprise and well worth the visit.
