Native American Art - - NEWS -

In an ex­hi­bi­tion that will run through 2022, the Na­tional Mu­seum of the Amer­i­can In­dian dis­sects the Amer­i­can In­dian im­ages, names and sto­ries that are in­fused in Amer­i­can his­tory and con­tem­po­rary life. Ti­tled Amer­i­cans, the ex­hi­bi­tion high­lights the ways in which Amer­i­can In­di­ans have been a part of the na­tion’s iden­tity since be­fore the coun­try be­gan, and an­a­lyze the im­agery that per­vades our cul­ture, in­clud­ing the Land O’lakes but­ter maiden, the Cleve­land In­di­ans’ mas­cot and the Tom­a­hawk mis­sile.
