This banner exhibition chronicles the largely unknown history of Native American veterans. Native peoples have served the U.S. in every major military encounter from the Revolutionary War to today’s conflicts in the Middle East—and, at a higher rate in proportion to their population than any other ethnic group. Using art, photography and essays, the 16-panel show examines more than 300 years of Native people's contributions to the U.S. military.
