Seller’s Note: Karen Herbert was unique in her passions. Foremost was her love of Native American culture. This started at a very young age, never ebbed and has been passed on to her children and grandchildren. After the birth of her severely disabled son, Karen found peace in walking freshly plowed fields searching for arrowheads. Her passion grew – as did her collection. She visited museums, read countless books, and picked the minds of fellow collectors.

     Following the purchase of a pair of baby moccasins, the focus of her collection took a new direction. She wanted to educate others about a culture that merely gets touched on around Thanksgiving. She reached out to schools, scout troops, home-schooled groups and clubs. She traveled across the country in search of authentic artifacts that kids of all ages would find fascinating.

     Karen wanted to show others how Native Americans lived their daily lives without modern conveniences from birth to death. She touched on every aspect including clothing, hygiene, spiritual beliefs, tools and everyday ways of life. Karen collected items that excited your senses – the colors, textures, sights and smells all brought her presentations to life. She was an amazing, caring, passionate woman who wanted to share her knowledge with everyone to ignite their curiosity and learn from a past civilization and how they lived. She would give lectures at schools, museums and even invite people into her home to share her knowledge and incredible collection.
