Every branch of the U.S. military has its own core values that define the men and women who serve. Learning the virtue of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage is one of the first tasks of anyone who dare take the oath. It is this steadfast commitment to being a warrior that brings Natives and non-Natives alike together at Veterans Powwows.
Not only have Natives served in every branch of the U.S. military for over the past 200 years, the value of selflessly defending one’s nation is one of the most highly-regarded Native traditions. Just as Honor, Courage and Commitment is fundamental to the character of every Marine in the Corps, those very same values are treasured in Native culture, for thousands of years to the present day. We invite all members of the military, both Veteran and active duty and their families to join us in honoring and thanking this Country’s greatest heroes at our 2017 Veterans Powwow.
This event is open to all Native and non-native veterans, active duty military and their families, museum members as well as the general public who are encouraged to join us in honoring and thanking this country's greatest heroes at our 2017 Veterans Powwow being held inside the museum.
