National Native American Hall of Fame Is Coming In 2018 – Take The Nominee Survey

Ten years ago, James Parker Shield, Little Shell Chippewa and Cree, started thinking about a potential organization that could recognize Native Americans after visiting a Cowboy Hall of Fame and a Country Music Hall of Fame. Realizing there wasn’t such a place, he decided to come out of retirement to establish the National Native American Hall of Fame.“I just felt that so many Natives that had done so much for Indian Country were being overlooked and possibly forgotten,” Shield told Indian Country Today.

After 10 years of hard work — which included selecting a location and calling upon a group of all-Native board members to help in the selection process of possible inductees — Shield’s dream has become reality.
