The American Heritage Gallery inside The American Adventure at EPCOT has reopened with new artifacts after a brief closure.
This gallery has a long history of organizing the “Creating Tradition” exhibition, which highlights innovation and change in Native American (or Native American) artwork from different regions of the country.
Each display inside is dedicated to a different region listed on the map.
Almost everything in the Southeast Storefront is new.
There are several dolls from the Seminole tribe.
There are outfits on display, with information on Seminole patchwork clothing.
This basket was created by Eastern Band artist Cherokee Shan Goshorn.

The Plains case saw the addition of a beautiful dress.
This southern buckskin dress and accessories were created around 2004 by members of the Comanche and Blackfeet tribes.
