The Guardian reviews the World of Stonehenge exhibition at the British Museum as a “ knockout epic,” noting it to be “up there with the British Museum’s legendary shows.” “This is a fiercely emotional exhibition, full of love for the people of the distant past.”
The First Americans Museum represents the first time Native Americans will be telling the Native American story on this scale without the overbearing presence of non-native curators, board members, or directors. This is the actual story of Oklahoma’s Native population–all 39 tribes who now call it home, the 31 who were relocated here from points across America and the eight either indigenous to the area or having a historical connection to it–as told by those who lived it.
