About

Overview

Clyde Warrior was a Ponca who helped propel the American Indian rights movement in the 1960s. Richard (Skip) Hayward was the Pequot most responsible for starting Foxwoods, the world's largest casino. Chickasaw John Herrington was the first Native American astronaut. Now there's a place to meet them all—and many other noteworthy Native Americans, including Navajo poet Laura Tohe and Luiseño performance artist James Luna.
