Today is National Roots Day! Celebrate your heritage!

Today is National Roots Day! Celebrate your heritage! 

The National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) is providing a way to re-shape American’s understanding of Native peoples. It is steadfastly committed to bringing all Americans in touch with their actual history and serves as an honest thoughtful conduit to Native cultures — present and past — in all their richness, depth, and diversity. It is a distinct and multifaceted cultural and educational enterprise and a resource for the hemisphere's Native communities.
