The National Museum of the American Indian has a slew of exhibits and attractions. Among this multitude, the film “Who We Are” is a must-see. This portrayal of modern Indian Country reinforces the surviving and thriving nature of Native culture. Other indigenous communities are featured as well. The museum’s Lelawi Theater is currently screening the movie. It is located up on the fourth floor and seats 120 people. This 13 minute film is a nice break from all the standing and walking.   

The museum is at the intersection of 4th Street and Independence Avenue SW. By Metro, from the Crystal City Station jump on the Yellow towards Fort Totten. Use the L’Enfant Plaza stop, followed by a brisk 9 minute walk. By car, it’s approximately 10 minutes. The movie is free, just like admission to the museum! -Lorenzo Gudino
