About This Event
Wednesday, November 11, 2020
On Veterans Day 2020, the museum will host a virtual event to mark the completion of the National Native American Veterans Memorial. The event will acknowledge the service and sacrifice on Native veterans and their families. When it is safe to do so, the museum will schedule a dedication ceremony at the memorial so that Native veterans and their families can be honored in person.
