Free Admission Sunday at National Museum of the American Indian - see INFO below. The foundations are firm; the NMAI is ready to move forward with the job for which it was created. Our objective is no less than to change what the world knows about the Native peoples of the Americas and Hawaii. We seek to bring the Native voice into every school, every library, every university, indeed every home. Most Americans will never enter our museum, yet because of the digital revolution in communications we can reach them all. Additionally, this good work would not be possible without the help of the tens of thousands of members, volunteers, and donors who support this museum, to whom we are forever indebted. We thank them for their financial contributions, of course, but also for the philosophical, political, and moral support that strengthens and emboldens this institution. Because of them, we can face the challenges that lie ahead with great optimism for this museum, for the Native communities we represent, and for the world. The physical foundation is certainly impressive, but the intellectual and philosophical groundwork of the NMAI is just as important. This metaphysical foundation was built by Native thinkers, Native culture bearers, and Native artists. That is why we try in every endeavor to speak authentically and to present Native peoples' deeply held understandings of their own cultures and histories.
