CALL FOR ENTRIES

November 11, 2017–January 9, 2018

Potential applicants must create an account to log in and submit an application.



The National Museum of the American Indian invites entries to the design competition for the National Native American Veterans Memorial—the first to recognize the exceptional military service of Native Americans. These servicemen and women are some of the most honored members of their tribes and communities. Across the nation, Native Americans who protect our country and our way of life are recognized publicly as the greatest patriots of all.

Despite this enduring and distinguished legacy spanning two and a half centuries of American history, no national memorial yet exists—Native veterans and those serving today remain unrecognized by any landmark.

With your participation, however, this will soon change.
