St Louis University Museum information
The St Louis University Museum, in the basement of the campus library, is run by Ike Picpican, one of the country’s foremost authorities on the history and culture of the Cordillera people. There’s a strong collection of weapons, basketry and other hill tribe ethnographic artefacts, and the placards are well written, but it helps if Ike is around to explain their context. Free tours end with participatory native-instrument jam sessions. To get here, you leave some form of ID with the front security folks at St Louis University.
