Meet pioneering astronaut John Herrington, the first Native American to travel in space, and Alaska Native pilot Ariel Tweto, who are appearing in the upcoming Into America’s Wild, “an unforgettable cross-country adventure into the hidden wonders of the natural world.”
In conversation with Mandy Van Heuvelen (Mnicoujou Lakota) Cultural Interpreter Program Coordinator at the National Museum of the American Indian, Herrington and Tweto will discuss the spark that led them on their adventure pathways and share how their time in nature during the filming of this documentary provided opportunities to connect with their Native American heritage.

(655 Jefferson Drive, S.W., Washington, D.C.)
