Bank of America is a partner of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) and the sponsor of the exhibition Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations.

Treaties lie at the heart of the relationship between Indian Nations and the United States, and Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations is the story of that relationship, including the history and legacy of U.S.–American Indian diplomacy from the colonial period through the present. The exhibition opened in September 2014 and is now scheduled to close in 2022, after being extended several times. The NMAI website offers a look at the treaties featured in the exhibition, including transcripts.

Bank of America is proud to support the National Native American Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, which will honor the military service of Native Americans. Upon the memorial’s completion, the NMAI will host a series of virtual celebrations and programs.

Our support also extends to the NMAI’s Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress—a program to collect, preserve and make accessible to researchers and the public the oral histories of Native American veterans.
