  • Grand Opening!

    Hey everyone!
    I am just trying to get the word out! The GRAND OPENING for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian is going to be at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, September 21, 2004.
    For more information, you can check out the website:
    http://www.nmai.si.edu
    I had the privilege of attending the ground breaking ceremony, I am a member of the Vietnam Era Veteran's Intertribal Association color guard of the Washington Metro Chapter so I had the honor of being able to be apart of it. It was a beautiful experience! So many people, so many people from so many different nations it was AWESOME!!!!! To be there and be apart of it all, words can't describe the feelings I had. The webpage says if you are interested participating, please contact NCAI's Jamie Gomez at 202-466-7767. If you can make it please attend, let's show the world what NATIVE PRIDE is all ABOUT!!!
    SEMPER FI!

      It's too bad the folks @ the Smithsonian never paid the original architect his fees for the building (D.J. Cardinal).. it's sad when an Indian feels like he has been ripped off by an such a large and honoured institution like the Smithsonian...for Mr. Cardinals story.. his story....http://www.djcarchitect.com/NMAIStory/NMAIframe.htm

          Thanks for that link, I was reading parts of it but it's pretty extensive. I'll read more again later. I used to work at NMAI in Bronx, NY. We heard that they let Mr. Cardinal go and I can't remember why he left, some type of disagreement, but I felt bad for Mr. Cardinal and thought that they should have tried harder to work with him. I do agree that it is disgraceful what they did to him and I hope that he will be compensated in some way.

            by CaudwellianDialect
            Okay so thus far chapter 3 is one of my strongest, though it is an action chapter, and I am trying to avoid too many of those because I don't want to portray the Anowarkowans as violent people, but more, it is hard to say, they are enlightenment era almost technologically, but different then Europeans,...

            Dear Subscribers,

            I am about to start the creative process in my efforts to tell the story of Native American people in the last 150 years or so. I understand that this may be beyond the scope of the work and will likely focus on an aspect or period in particular that is emblematic. Although...
