Smithsonian Institution: Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indians

This 8,000-square-foot exhibition explores an important part of US history–the evocative story of the United States’ relationship with American Indian Nations. Treaties, the agreements at the heart of this complicated relationship, had incalculable effects on the lives of American Indians and shaped the Nation as we know it today. This is the first museum exhibition to tell the story of Indian treaties on a national scale and will remain open through spring 2020.

Nation to Nation has been awarded the American Alliance of Museums 2016 Excellence in Exhibition Award! This Program recognizes outstanding achievement in the exhibition format from all types of non-commercial institutions offering exhibitions to the public. The Jury noted that: “The Excellence in Exhibition chose this exhibition as an ‘Overall Winner’ for the front end evaluation and comprehensive narrative woven into a rich combination of beautiful design and organized content.”
