ONEIDA, N.Y. -- The eighth $1 million check in a series of ten was presented to the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian by the Oneida Nation.
The museum and the Oneida Nation are working together to make improvements to the Oneida Nations 'Allies in War, Partners in Peace' statue exhibit, something the director of the museum says will be greatly appreciated by its patrons.
"Right now, it's a sculpture with a little bit of interpretation of a very significant relationship between the U.S. and the Oneida Nation, but the visitors are constantly asking what the rest of the story is, how did this happen, who are these people and the new exhibit will include more of that story," said Kevin Gover, Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian.
The exhibit is expected to be installed at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. next spring.
