Smithsonian Institution, the museum's opening,
and to supplement the museum's ongoing endowment

The fate of the American Buffalo - or bison - was
linked to the fate of the Native American, and
vice versa. Native Americans hunted the bison and
used the carcass for everything from shelter and
food to needles and cooking implements --they
were known for wasting nothing.
The study of Native Americans, including their
language, literature, history, art and
anthropology, is the purpose of the proposed
National Museum of the American Indian. The
museum will feature more than 10,000 years of
American history. The 260,000 square foot museum
is scheduled to open on the National Mall near
the U.S. Capitol in 2004 and is expected to
attract about 6 million visitors a year. Ground
was broken for the museum on September 28, 1999.
