A new tool will help visitors to Washington, D.C. discover the historic and contemporary landmarks of those who inhabited the city’s land before its development as the nation’s capital. Elizabeth Rule, assistant director of the AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy (AT&T CIPP) at the GW College of Professional Studies, said D.C. is full of landmarks with historical, political and cultural connections to Native Americans.
