Museum explores past and present of Native Americans

What you think you know about Native Americans (still sometimes inaccurately referred to as “Indians”) isn’t entirely right.

I’m really astounded by how much I DON’T know about my own people.  I’ve been doing a lot of researching and reading on all the Tribes of the Nations and I find them all extraordinary.  I’m beyond pissed at our government who CONTINUES to destroy our people by teaching us lies about how they lived, how they cultivated, and how truly advanced they were.  Instead we’re taught they were few in number and lived like savages. 

No, the white men who came to this land were savages.
