New York:  A new and important exhibition has opened at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City.

"Infinity of Nations" highlights connections among the complex societies of the Americas' Native peoples.  It features 700 objects from South, Central and North America, from ancient to modern times.

The museum worked with 60 native historians and experts to interpret many of the objects. Those objects were selected for their aesthetic, cultural and historic importance. They include ceremonial headdresses, a complete 1790s suit of clothing from an Upper Great Lakes tribe, and an elaborately beaded garment made of caribou skin with a pouch to carry a newborn.

About 20%  of the objects have never been exhibited before. 40%  have not been on view in decades.
