National Museum of the American Indian, Washington D.C.: 59 reviews and 268 photos
In National Museum of the American Indian I've seen the bold eagle feather which traveled into space on board of the space shuttle Endeavour together with the first Native American astronaut John Bennett Herrington - a registered Chickasaw, born 1958 in Oklahoma. He resides in Spicewood, Texas now. He flew from NASA's Kennedy Space Center with six other astronauts to the International Space Station in 2002.
I've also seen beautiful and unique works of art made by Native Indians including pottery and (open my next pictures):
- Painted Mesa Bear Belt Buckle (1989; sterling silver with copper and German silver)
- Painted Mesa Belt Buckle (1980'; sterling silver, copper, brass and German silver
