Included in the display were kites such as:

  • “The Navajo,” a nineteen-foot delta (3 sided) kite made in the U.S.
  • A black and white “Cody Kite,” flown by Samuel Cody, Buffalo Bill’s brother. This kite is a man lifter and was used as an artillery spotter in World War II.
  • “Rokkaku Kite,” is a red, white and blue classic proportion kite originating in China around 900 A.D.
  • Enjoy the diamond and blue butterfly kite made in Bali of silk and bamboo, specifically for the enjoyment of children.
