Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Presents "Patriot Nations: Native Americans in Our Nation's Armed Forces"
January 26, 2017
Native Americans have served in every major U.S. military encounter from the Revolutionary War to today’s conflicts in the Middle East in higher numbers per capita than any other ethnic group. “Patriot Nations: Native Americans in Our Nation’s Armed Forces” reveals the remarkable history of Native American veterans through art, photography and essay. The 16-panel exhibition documents 250 years of Native peoples’ contributions in U.S. military history and remains on view from Jan. 21, through January 2018 in the Sealaska Gallery of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
