The Museum of Peoples and Cultures, located at 700 N. 100 E. in Provo, is currently showcasing "Custom Made: Artifacts as Cultural Expression." The exhibit explores the qualities that define cultures around the world. The exhibition leads visitors through North America, South America and into the isles of the Pacific.

Also exhibited is "In Search of Relics: The Pectol-Lee Collection of Artifacts from Capitol Reef," an exciting collection from two families motivated by their faith to collect artifacts. To prove the veracity of the Book of Mormon, these "cowboy archaeologists" searched for ancient relics in the dry caves of southern Utah when it was still private land. They found a rich stash of artifacts from antiquity, many of them fragile organic materials that were miraculously preserved. Among the relics are a cradle board, the only one of its kind in the world, an animal headdress used as a hunting disguise or by a shaman to ensure a successful hunt, baskets, clothing, moccasins, cordage, rope and many other objects. A mixture of Anasazi, Fremont and Ute cultures is represented in this marvelous exhibit.
