The na­tive peo­ples of the Amer­i­cas have a fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory, but their achieve­ments have of­ten been ig­nored by main­stream cul­tures. A new per­ma­nent in­stal­la­tion in New York City wants to change that. The IMAG­I­NA­TIONS Ac­tiv­ity Cen­ter is part of the Smith­so­nian’s Na­tional Mu­seum of the Amer­i­can In­dian and is in­tended for youth and fam­i­lies. Pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion in English and Span­ish, it opened in May of 2018, fol­low­ing a $9 mil­lion ren­o­va­tion. The mu­seum con­cen­trates on na­tive in­no­va­tions as well as on agri­cul­tural, en­gi­neer­ing and med­i­cal de­vel­op­ments, such as the Aztecs’ herbal medicine.
