Also in Washington, "Return to a Native Place: Algonquian Peoples of the Chesapeake" is an ongoing show of photographs, maps, ceremonial and everyday objects giving evidence of the continuing, since the 1600s, presence of the Nanticoke, Powhatan and Piscataway Tribes in the Chesapeake area.
Three additional ongoing exhibitions at the NMAI in DC feature “Our Universe”, “Our Peoples” and “Our Lives”. The first focuses on cosmologies of the Native communities and the spiritual relationships between them and the earth. The second tells the stories, and 500 years of history, of eight different indigenous Native tribes through their own words. The third reveals how the members of eight Native communities live, and preserve and express their identity within the complexities of the 21st Century .
Shows in the nation’s capitol are presented at the NMAI on the Mall.
