More information will be shared is forthcoming, please watch this space.

“The memorial honors the commitment and bravery of Native American service members who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, often paying with their lives — the ultimate sacrifice of many American families. It also recognizes the Native people who served in all capacities beyond war, including humanitarian and peacekeeping operations,” according to the National Museum of the American Indian website.

Please note, the National Museum of the American Indian is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information on the virtual dedication ceremony, visit
