The National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) is part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum complex. The NMAI cares for one of the world's most expansive collections of Native artifacts, including objects, photographs, archives, and media covering the entire Western Hemisphere, from the Arctic Circle to Tierra del Fuego.
If you're heading to the East Coast, celebrate Native American Heritage Month with a visit to NMAI on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. or NMAI-New York, the George Gustav Heye Center. If you're sticking closer to home, explore NMAI's website, which is rich with details, articles and photographs representing the museum's collections, exhibitions, and programs. While you're on the site, take time to explore the many interesting and informative videos on the Multimedia page.
