General:
The Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) and its surrounding Native Landscape garden opened on September 21, 2004. At a total of 4.25 acres, the building and landscape lie east of 4th Street SW and south of Jefferson Drive, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Rather than a controlled, linear style that is found in much of the surrounding buildings, the NMAI museum and landscape evoke feelings of fluidity and connection with nature. The landscape contains more than 33,000 plants of approximately 150 species, all of which are native to the Piedmont region between the Atlantic coastal plain and the Appalachian Mountains. Additionally, all of the species have an ethnobotanical use for Native Americans, whether for food, medicine, fiber, dye, or ceremonial purposes.
Legislation was enacted to create NMAI on November 28, 1989. Leaders from nearly 150 native communities spanning North and Central America were consulted, culminating in a planning document entitled "The Way of the People," published in 1993. Architect Douglas Cardinal (Blackfoot tribe) of Ottawa, Canada, designed the building of the museum. For the landscape, the architectural firm EDAW, Inc. (now part of AECOM) collaborated with ethnobotanist Donna House (Navajo/Oneida) on the design and plant selection, and with landscape architect Johnpaul Jones (Choctaw/Cherokee) and artist Ramona Sakiestewa (Hopi).
The Native Landscape is comprised of four habitats of the natural regional landscape: upland hardwood forest (on the north side of the museum), wetlands (east), cropland (southeast), and meadow (southwest). The 24,000-square-foot forest habitat is divided into three zones with different soil moisture levels that affect the kinds of plants that grow in each zone. The 6,000-square-foot wetlands is a lush aquatic landscape filled with water lilies and cattails, inspired by the site's geologic history as a swamp. The 5,200-square-foot cropland is an organically sustained garden, maintained through Native American strategies of crop rotation and companion planting, along with the use of natural pest-predators such as ladybugs. Produce harvested from the cropland is used in NMAI's café and for on-site ceremonies. The 5,500-square-foot meadow lies on both sides of the south entrance, and is comprised of wildflowers, grasses, and two American elm trees.
Art and architecture adorn the landscape. Ever-evolving clay sculptures entitled "Always Becoming," designed by Nora Naranjo-Morse (Santa Clara Pueblo), have stood in the meadow habitat since 2007. The north side of NMAI features an acclaimed waterfall feature which represents Tiber Creek, a former tributary of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. An offering area and many places of rest and reflection are built into the architecture of the landscape. Performances are held at the fire pit and outdoor amphitheater or at the Welcome Plaza. Astronomical artworks are engraved in the pavement at the museum's north and east entrances.
Four stone cardinal direction markers lie along the east-west and north-south axes of the building. These large boulders come from four corners of the western hemisphere, and date from different epochs: North (Canada, Basins Group era), south (Chile, Cretaceous period), east (Maryland, Cambrian period), and west (Hawaii, ca. 1662). Forty additional boulders lie along the landscape's perimeter, to serve as protective bollards and also symbolize the longevity and memories of native tribes. These "Grandfather Rocks" were blessed by American Indians in both Canada (from which they originated) and the United States.
Plantings include columbine (Aquilegia canadensis), flowering dogwood (Cornus florida), serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea), yellow wakerobin (Trillium luteum), mannagrass (Glyceria striata), wild rice (Zizania aquatica), buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis), goldenrod (Solidago sp.), watercress (Nasturtium officinale), tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), corn (Zea mays), barley (Hordeum vulgare).
People associated with this garden include: EDAW (landscape architectural firm, circa 1989-2004). Donna House (Navajo/Oneida) (ethnobotanist, circa 1990-2004). Johnpaul Jones (Cherokee/Choctaw) (landscape architect, circa 1990-2004). Ramona Sakiestewa (Hopi) (design collaborator, circa 1990-2004). Nora Naranjo-Morse (Santa Clara Pueblo) (artist, 2007- ). Douglas Cardinal (Blackfoot) (building architect, circa 1990-2004).

Scope and Contents:
[From the Original 1927 Catalog] (Partial) These noteworthy constructions nestle on the slope of a small hill known as the White Hill or Moon Hill, the lie east-southeast of Chan Chan and southeast of Trujillo. Between Chan Chan and the huacas lie all of the fields of Trujillo watered by the Moche river. The latter flows by the western base of the Huaca of the Sun and its waters in their headlong rush have seriously damaged the famous monument. The two huacas, built of adobes have the hardness and texture of bricks; they stand facing each other and the open scape between them is covered with ancient ruins.

The Huaca of the Sun is the most imposing prehistoric building found in the vicinity of Trujillo and has all the appearances of a fortress although tradition assigns it to the role of a temple […] There is a shaft which has been sunk in the southeastern side facinf the Huaca of the Moon by the profession haqueros. According to all accounts many metal and pottery objects have been found in it and in 1925, the year the Moche river was boiling over and washing against the side of the Huaca , the natives spent their time hunting out the huacos that had been swept out of the foundations of the monument's ruins and scattered about.

The Huaca of the Moon differs substantially from that of the Sun in appearance and character. It appears to be a building that served as a habitation. It is built on the slope of White Hill and is built on the rocks of that hill […]The most notable thing about this Huaca are some of the walls ornamented with magnificent frescos, notable especially for their lines, expression and color […] On the side of the slope of White Hill are many archaeological sites from which have been taken many huge water jars.

[From the Original 1927 Catalog] This group takes its name Velarde from the Prefect pf Trujillo Don Carlos Aureo Velarde who accidentally discovered in it some walls covered with magnificent designs in high relief in 1905 or 1906. These walls have been photographed and reproduced in books an infinite number of times. Not a single design is in existence today. The group is situation between the Spanish church of San Jose and the Huanchaco road on the northeast. The works of the Tello group bound it on the southeast; as do the Cabildo group. This is surrounded by a wall which has been cut by the huaeros in various places. It is of the same general aspect as the other groups; a huaca or principal building (in this case the one with the decorated walls discovered by Velarde) yapus and small constructions. It is one of those most frequently visited by the tourists. The principal edifice appears to be buried.

[From the Original 1927 Catalog] (Partial) El Mampuesto (The Rubble Heap) is a high and broad wall, trapezoidal in form, constructed of stone and earth in the small valley into which empties the river called Quebrada de Leon, which carries water only filled by the exceptional torrential rains which fall in rare seasons in that region. "The Rubble Heap" resembles an "S" in shape and stretches out to some length running from the base of Goat Hill to the northwest until it reaches the little hill called El Presdio which lies to the southeast[…]

[From the Original 1927 Catalog] This group situated in the line of buildings which are closest to the seas, is, as one is able to see by the panoramic view, located between the Rivero and Chaiuak groups. The former to the northwest and the latter to the east by southeast. It is in the form of a square. It is less extensive than that of Uhle and is surrounded by a high wall. It has no walled subdivisions such as are found in the Uhle group. The archaeologist Tschudi who studied it and left a plan of it worked in conjunction with Rivero. It has many interesting works, as may be seen in the photographs. The principal ones are: a walled square containing many huge chambers which traditionally at least, has received the name of "The Prisons"; a very deep well; a gallery with decorated walls and a series of buildings with walls decorated with lozenges and broken squares. The work immediately adjoining it is also sufficiently complicated for at the outer angle of the square is located a stone work with a foundation amply made of slag rocks. The exterior view of the entire group was taken from the southern angle of the Cabildo group. The northeast and northwest walls of the outer enclosure are visible. In the foreground are the remains of some of the common houses, according to the beliefs of the archaeologists.
