Native American Veterans Memorial @ the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC

Join us here on November 11, 2020, to view a virtual program honoring the service and sacrifice of Native veterans and their families and marking the completion of the National Native American Veterans Memorial. The program will include tributes to Native veterans and a virtual tour of the memorial.

“We invite you to participate in this historic moment—for our country, for veterans, and for the Native American communities whose loyalty and passion have helped make America what it is today.”

—Kevin Gover (Pawnee), Director, National Museum of the American Indian
