Smithsonian Postal Museum and National Museum of the American Indian launch new online collection

Washington, D.C. (NFIC) 1-09

The Smithsonian National Postal Museum and the National Museum of the American Indian have collaborated to create a beautiful digital collection called “The American Indian on Stamps: Profiles in Leadership, Accomplishment and Cultural Celebration.”

It features 40 images of the approximately 70 stamps that the U.S. Postal Service has issued of Native Americans since 1875.

“One of the most intriguing aspects of this one-of-a-kind Web site is that it shows the American Indian presence on stamps for over a century alongside with actual objects that inspired their creation,” said Kevin Gover, director, National Museum of the American Indian.

The collection can only be viewed at
www.arago.si.edu.
