Native American Voices: The People - Here and Now

The 2,000 square foot exhibition tells important stories of Native American successes in achieving independence as sovereign (self-governing) Nations. Through old and new objects, video and audio recordings, and digital interactive opportunities, this exhibition allows visitors to develop a new understanding of the original inhabitants of this land, as told through Native American voices. There are four main themes presented in the exhibition: Local Nations, Sacred Places, Continuing Celebrations, and New Initiatives.
