The Land Has Memory

The Native landscape where the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) now resides has changed, declined, and emerged in recovery since the time of English colonization. The land recalls history and remembers. This chapter looks far back into history of the land where Washington, D.C. now sits to see how the landscape has changed over that time and look at the legacies left behind. With the help of environmental regulations instituted in the 1970s, there has been a great deal of recovery and restoration. The landscape at the NMAI provides a small glimpse of the rich diversity of the Chesapeake Bay region.

Keywords:   landscape, Chesapeake Bay region, history, English colonization, environmental regulations, NMAI
