Osage Nation Museum to hold opening reception for a new exhibit.
Pawhuska, OK— Many Osages took up the call to arms beginning with 153 servicemen in World War I. Osage Code Talkers worked alongside other Native Americans to relay sensitive information in their native languages. The enduring sense of community protection can be seen as Osages continue to serve their country through participation in every branch of service, in every major war the US has fought since WWI.
Native Americans have served in every major U.S. military encounter from the Revolutionary War to today’s conflicts in the Middle East in higher numbers per capita than any other ethnic group.
National Museum of the American Indian Presents Patriot Nations: Native Americans in Our Nation’s Armed Forces, which reveals the remarkable history of Native American veterans through art, photography and essay. The 16-panel exhibition documents 250 years of Native peoples’ contributions in U.S. military history and will be on display at the Osage Nation Museum from January 10th through June 12th, 2019.
