IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas

Many recollections of United States government and history fail to paint an accurate and inclusive account of the complete "American identity." IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas seeks to remedy this by highlighting "the lives and experiences of people who share African American and Native American ancestry." The exhibition showcases how "African-Native American people were united in the struggle against slavery and dispossession, and then for self-determination and freedom." After reading the Introduction section, readers can explore the four major themes: Policy, Community, Creative Resistance, and Lifeways. These sections explore many events in U.S. legal history, including the creation and amendment of tribal constitutions, colonialism's influence on legal systems, struggles over land rights, and self-governance and tribal regulations. The exhibition is a collaboration between several institutions, including the National Museum of the American Indian, National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
