They Came to Washington: The First Ambassadors
Originated by the Marin Museum of the American Indian in Novato, this striking exhibit features lithographic portraits of distinguished and diverse Native American leaders who came to Washington, D.C. to negotiate for tribal rights in the early 19th century. The lithographs were based on original paintings by Charles Bird King (1785-1862), and commissioned by Thomas McKenney, the U.S. Superintendent of Indian Trade from 1824-1830. Examples of Grace Hudson's rare Pawnee Indian portraits will also be on display.
