Call-in or tweet to Native American museum leader Gover Feb. 20

The director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian will be interviewed live on C-SPAN Feb. 20

Kevin Gover (Pawnee) is scheduled to appear on the popular program “Washington Journal” at 9:10 a.m. The entire program runs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Gover is expected to talk about the museum’s history, its current exhibits and issues that are important to Native Americans.

The museum was founded in 1989 and has a focus on Native cultures of the Western Hemisphere – past, present and future. The museum’s partnership with Native people is a cornerstone of its mission.

“Washington Journal,” which will air at the museum, is known for its interaction with viewers through phone calls and tweets that are taken and read on the air.

The program first aired in 1995 and regularly features journalists, policymakers and others who discuss current affairs and other issues raised by callers.

If you miss the live show, a replay is scheduled to run on C-SPAN3’s “American History TV” at 8 p.m. To view the program online and for more information, click here.
