This Innovative Memorial Will Soon Honor Native American Veterans

 


UPDATE 6/26/18: The National Museum of the American Indian has just announced its selection of Harvey Pratt’s Warrior Circle of Honor design for its new memorial to Native American veterans, which is expected to grace the National Mall by late 2020. Harvey hopes the memorial he envisioned will become a sacred place for Native Americans everywhere.

“Native Americans have been fighting for this country ever since the Vikings, ever since Columbus,” Harvey says. “Their blood is spilled all over America. Whoever owns this land, it will always be Indian country, and Indians are always going to fight for this land, and for this nation.” His Warrior Circle of Honor will pay tribute to the ongoing sacrifice of Native American peoples all across the country, and offer a place for survivors to come together in commemoration.
