Our Visit to the National Museum of the American Indian

I hadn't been to the National Museum of the American Indian in lower Manhattan for a year or so I thought it would be time for a return visit.  This museum is part of the Smithsonian Institution and is free to the public.  Our tax dollars support it along with several foundations.

The museum features the lifeways, history, and art of Indigenous peoples throughout the Western
Hemisphere.  Some of the exhibits are permanent while others are featured for a finite period of time.  Most of the works that were displayed today were done within the last century.  One exhibit demonstrated the contributions of Native Americans in the war efforts throughout our history.  Below are examples of two of the artworks that I saw.
