Abstract: The National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), the Smithsonian Institution’s new facility on the National Mall inWashington DC, challenges the very notion of what constitutes a museum. Probably the most theoretically informed museum in North America, this is no shrine to the past: it is a museum that claims both past and present to shape a decolonised future for Indigenous populations.
