Through the artwork on display, the exhibition reflects the myriad reasons—land, family and cultural responsibility—why American Indian men and women enlist in the U.S. military and serve at a higher percentage than other ethnic groups.

The exhibition includes works of art created by Rick Bartow (Mad River Band of Wiyot), T.C. Cannon (Kiowa/Caddo), Sherman Chaddlesone (Kiowa), Bob Haozous (Diné/Warm Springs Apache), Doug Hyde (Nez Perce/Assiniboine/Chippewa), Yazzie Johnson (Diné) and Gail Bird (Laguna Pueblo/Santo Domingo Pueblo), Charles Loloma (Hopi), Jesse Monongye (Diné), TahNibaa Naataanii (Diné), Shirley Pino (Santa Ana Pueblo) and Helen Begay (Diné).
