[Ed. – With their growing hatred of all things American (including the term Native American), it’s surprising that they’d want one.]
The creation of a national memorial to honor Native American veterans is a step closer to becoming a reality.
A call for entries to design the National Native American Veterans Memorial was issued on Nov. 11 by the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., where the memorial will be placed.
“It’s a wide-open competition. We’re inviting artists, architects, designers and regular citizens to submit their ideas for a design,” Rebecca Trautmann, projects curator for the memorial, said.
The competition will be completed in two stages with entries for the first stage due on Jan. 9.
Participants selected for the second stage will be announced on Jan. 25, and the design selected for the memorial will be announced on July 4, according to the memorial website.
“It’s exciting to see it moving forward, and it’s exciting to be at this stage where we’re starting to accept designs,” Trautmann said.
