At the turn of the 20th century, people took to collecting Native American objects. They were arranged in what were dubbed "Indian corners," what Jessica Hunter Larsen, curator of the IDEA Space at Colorado College, calls a "hodge-podge" of moccasins, dolls and other artifacts from different tribes. Many were collected through dealers, curio shops, connections to tribe members and even robbed burial sites.
