National
Jodi Rave: Mixed emotions surround NMAI opening


"It's already been consecrated a cathedral, a spiritual marker of the ages, a beautiful Native place, a monument of magnificence.

And the National Museum of the American Indian has been open for only a few days.

Its breathtaking nature - an architectural sensation housing the world's most extensive collection of Native objects - is not disputed.

But as museums go, it is a paradox.

It evokes life. And some say it hides death."
