Image by wallyg Potlach figures, ca. early 19th century Carved and painted red cedar, nails Opened in October 1994, the George Gustav Heye Center of the National Museum of the American Indian, at the historic Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in lower Manhattan, serves as the National Museum of the American Indian's exhibition and education facility in New York City. Permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as a range of public programs—including music and dance performances, films, and symposia—explore the diversity of the Native people of the Americas and the strength and continuity of their cultures from the earliest times to the present. Within the Heye Center, the Resource Center orients visitors to the museum's offerings, and provides visitors with the opportunity to use the latest computer technology to learn more about Native life and history. In addition, online technology links the museum and Native communities throughout the Western Hemisphere.

    These are some awesome artifacts, would you be interested in joining the group, "Native Americans of the Land", it’s new but we will grow in time.
