Don’t Miss ‘Patriot Nations: Native Americans in Our Nation’s Armed Forces’ at National Museum of the American Indian

A new exhibition at the National Museum of the American Indian will shed light on the brave sacrifices Native Americans and Alaska Natives made during their military service. ‘Patriot Nations: Native Americans in Our Nation’s Armed Forces’ opened on January 21st, and displays a collection of artifacts and rarely seen photographs that span the Revolutionary War up to now.

This powerful and enlightening exhibit is located at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, which holds the world’s largest and most diverse collection of artifacts, indigenous landscaping, and exhibitions. The museum was formed as a collaboration between multiple tribes and Native American communities. This particular exhibition announces the development of the National Native American Veterans Memorial, which was requisitioned by Congress to mark the significance of these selfless contributions.

The Patriot Nations exhibit will remain open and free to the public from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week until January 2018.
