New memorial to Native American veterans opens on National Mall
Washington, D.C. is celebrating this Veterans Day with a new memorial on the National Mall. The National Native American Veterans Memorial was unveiled this morning in a virtual presentation in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
Located by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, the memorial is a simple stainless steel circle balancing on a carved stone drum, and also features a flame that will be lit on Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and other occasions that honor Native veterans. Surrounding the sculpture is a rounded wall with five military seals.
