  • At the National Library of Medicine main building in Bethesda, MD
    Or, if you’re planning to be in the Washington, DC area, come see the Healing Totem Pole, installed outside the main entrance to the National Library of Medicine as part of the original Native Voices exhibition. The display includes the pole and two carved benches, with interpretive signage, and is adjacent to NLM’s healing plant garden. It is open to NIH visitors during daylight hours. Also, the traveling version of Native Voices is on display in the NLM Rotunda in the NLM main building on the NIH campus, known as Building 38. The unit on display has six banners and six iPads, from which visitors can view the entire Native Voices video content and extensive other material that supplements the banners. The NLM rotunda is open Monday through Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm, except for Federal holidays.
