THE WHEELWRIGHT MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN on Museum Hill presents A Certain Fire: Mary Cabot Wheelwright Collects the Southwest
"I think that any fundamental success in creating something has to come from a
certain fire, from an intense desire to help and from love of the activity." --MCW
The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian was founded in 1937 by Mary
Cabot Wheelwright. Born into a wealthy Boston family, Wheelwright traveled
widely and had a lifelong interest in the study of religions. Her collaborator in
the establishment of the museum was Hastiin Klah, an esteemed and influential
Navajo singer, or “medicine man.” Klah was born in 1867, when most of Navajo
people were held as prisoners of war by the United States government.
