Smithsonian Museum survey on the subject of "Black Indians" Posted on 06-14-2007

Greetings. The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) and the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in Washington D.C, are planning a collaborative exhibition on the subject of "Black Indians" – the shared history between African Americans and Native Americans. We would like to conduct a qualitative survey that will help us understand people's insights, opinions and thoughts on this subject, so that our exhibition is informed by community perspectives. All the respondents can email me at [EMAIL="lakshmir@si.edu"]lakshmir@si.edu[/EMAIL]. Thank you for your help. And this is the list of questions: 1. Have you heard anything about the Black Indians (shared history between African Americans and Native Americans)? What does this subject mean to you? 2. How would you define the phrase, “Black Indians”? 3. Have you heard family and community stories that might relate to this subject? 4. How does this history play out in different cultural expressions – now and in the past? 5. If a child has one parent who identifies herself/himself as African American and another as Native American, how would you categorize that child in terms of race? 6. What is your age, gender and how do you categorize yourself racially? 7. The Smithsonian is planning an exhibition on the subject? What would you like to see in such an exhibition? Where do you think this exhibition needs to be presented? Rama
