National Museum of the American Indian
Administered by the Smithsonian Institute, this striking building houses over 800,000 American Indian artifacts. The museum was established after it was discovered that the Smithsonian kept these thousands of human remains of American Indians in storage. It now is considered the world's best collection of Native artifacts spanning regions in the entire Western Hemisphere. Directed by a member of the Pawnee tribe, Kevin Gover, this museum is a comprehensive look at the indigenous people of several regions - their past, present, and possible future.
