From a young age, most Americans learn about the Founding Fathers, but are told very little about equally important and influential Native diplomats and leaders of Indian nations. Treaties lie at the heart of the relationship between Indian nations and the United States and this exhibition tells the story of that relationship, including the history and legacy of U.S.—American Indian diplomacy from the colonial period through the present.
