In 1994 following the completion of restoration, the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, a branch of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian located in Washington, D.C., moved into the building. The U.S. Bankruptcy Courts and U.S. Department of Transportation offices are also in the building.
One of the exhibits that caught my eye was “Native Fashion Now”. This is an amazing array of 70 works by Native fashion designers and artists that span the last 50 years. Through creative expression and political nuance, they capture the essence and concepts that bind the identity and tradition of their culture. Below is a slide show of a few of the creations.
