Free Admission Friday at National Museum of the American Indian - see INFO below. The first twenty years of the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) were devoted to laying the physical, intellectual, and philosophical foundations of this institutionand what a foundation it is. I feel a profound and increasing gratitude to the founders of this museum. We are here as a result of the farsighted and tireless efforts of Native culture warriors who demanded that the nation respect and celebrate the contributions that Native people have made to this country and to the world. The three extraordinary facilities of this institution were built through the determination and intellect of very special people who led the NMAI through its youth. Because of their ideas and their toil, we have the firmest conceivable foundation for promoting the beauty of Native culture and expression, the role of Native peoples in Western and world history, and their ongoing contributions to humanity. Mission Statement- The National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) is committed to advancing knowledge and understanding of the Native cultures of the Western Hemispherepast, present, and futurethrough partnership with Native people and others. The museum works to support the continuance of culture, traditional values, and transitions in contemporary Native life.
