National Native American Veterans Memorial Dedication -
The National Native American Veterans Memorial, located on the grounds of the National Museum of the American Indian, stands as a tribute to all American Indian, Native Alaskan, and Native Hawaiian veterans. It was designed by Harvey Pratt, a Vietnam veteran himself. Pratt, a Cheyenne Peace Chief and Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal citizen, submitted his design along with over five hundred other artists in 2017. The next year, he was chosen as one of six finalists, and finally as the winning artist that same year. Groundbreaking for the memorial took place in 2019, with a planned dedication the next year. However, Covid-19 changed the plans drastically, and the dedication had to wait until November of 2022. The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes traveled to Washington, DC with a large group of C&A veterans and elders, and Cheyenne and Arapaho Television was invited.
