    Today’s Native American leaders are speaking. Come and listen. Remarkable objects and contemporary voices combine to offer visitors a new understanding of the first inhabitants of this land, as told through Native American perspectives.

    Leave preconceptions behind and discover a living tapestry of Nations with distinct stories, histories, and identities in Native American Voices: The People—Here and Now, a new long-term interactive exhibition. Set against the backdrop of more than 200 objects from the Museum’s expansive collections from the United States and Canada, the exhibition challenges stereotypes and tells powerful stories of Native American successes in achieving independence as sovereign, self-governing Nations. At multimedia stations, visitors experience audio and video clips of contemporary Native Americans speaking of the many ways in which they maintain their religious, political, linguistic, and artistic independence.

     

    Native American Voices is generously presented by PECO.
