Out of all of the Smithsonians, I found the National Museum of the American Indian to be the most impressive from the outside. Designed by Native Americans, the whole design is full of symbolism.
However the museum in itself, even though its 15 years in the building, was founded after Native American Leaders found that the Smithsonian held between 12,000 – 18,000 Indian remains.
This is something that resonates with me being British, as many of the exhibits in UK have erm “dubious” origins, the Elgin Marbles, The Stone of Scone are two obvious examples, where the original owners would quite like them back…
However, from what I have read, the Smithsonian have handled this all very well but we wouldn’t know as we didn’t actually get to go in…
I have used the cut a landscape picture into a 4×4 square and paste it onto a 6×4 Project Life card before but I forget how effect it looks for filler pages such as this. I forgot however to add the journalling, which is why I included so much here…
