Video: 'Our Warrior Spirit: Native Americans in the U.S. Military'

Native Americans have served in the U.S. military since the American Revolution, long before they were allowed citizenship, and by percentage serve more than any other ethnic group in the armed forces. In a special Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian program, Native veterans shared their heroic and unforgettable stories of service in conflicts, and noted scholar and author Herman J. Viola, curator emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution, chronicles the roles of Native soldiers from 1770 to the present, including tales of tragedy, humor, loyalty, and conflict.
