Although I dislike the term "museum" because it tends to reinforce the notion of the "vanishing race," and thus relics within a museum, it acts more as a showcase of past and present native peoples

Ira Jacknis - A New Thing? The NMAI in Historical and Institutional Perspective - The American Indian Quarterly 30:3&4
The author writes: "As my title suggests, my basic question is to what extent is and was the (National) Museum of the American Indian unique or different or new? In order to answer this question, we must compare the institution to other collections of Native American objects. Museums, however, come in many varieties of size, subject, and mission, and they change and evolve over time. They also have multiple functions. Among the primary aspects considered here are collection, exhibition, and education/outreach. In this essay, I will attempt to place the Museum of the American Indian in varying disciplinal (anthropology, art, history) and geographic (city, region, nation) contexts."
