NOTE: where a museum is general, we cut to the chase -- that part of its Native collection that's on-line. Most official on-line museums (as opposed to those created by devoted amateurs, such as Nicolas Pioch) are more talk than pix, especially for their Indian collections.
National Museum of the American Indian--This is the Heye/Smithsonian Museum, in New York City.
This Path We Travel--One of just a few Indian pix from the new Smithsonian, actually taken from a book/catalog.
Native American Resources at the Smithsonian: National Museum of American History--almsot all text, describes scholarships and internships, a Native herb garden, etc.
Canadian Museum of Civilization - Gallery Tour-- In Toronto. Several good native galleries; a good Mayan exhibition. Others under construction, literally, physiucally.
