Our National Museum of the American Indian recalls the significant role that horses played in the lives of Native American Indians in the critically acclaimed exhibition, A Song for the Horse Nation on view at the National Museum of the American Indian October 29, 2011 - January 7, 2013. A Song for the Horse Nation, tells the epic story of the horse's influence on American Indian tribes, beginning with the return of horses to the Western Hemisphere by Christopher Columbus to the present day. The exhibition traces how horses changed the lives of Native people from the way they traveled, hunted and defended themselves to how horse trade among tribes was the conduit for the magnificent spread of horses in the Plains and Plateau regions of the United States. It shows beautifully how horses became the inspiration for new artworks and how horse traditions continue today in Indian Country at fairs, rodeos and annual youth rides.
