The Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas holds the Museum’s collection of around 23,000 Native North American artefacts, including items brought to London over four centuries of visits by Native Americans - from Pochontas onwards, through the Native New Yorkers of 1710, the Cherokees of 1762, Buffalo Bill in 1887, and more recently Lakota consultants who have worked with exhibitions in the Museum. Works on paper by artists from North America are held by the Department of Prints and Drawings (P&D). These include one of the best collection of 20th century prints from the United States outside the US itself. An exhibition 'Ash-Can to Pollock' will be held at the end of 2007. Coins, medals and paper money from the countries of North America are held by the Department of Coins and Medals (C&M), including rare early American coins and banknotes, modern medals and political badges.
