Issue Date: April 21, 2009

No Picture Available

On April 21, 2009, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued 12 new stamps featuring some of the most legendary American Indians of the American West. Iroquois ... Seminole ... Apache ... Sioux ... Cheyenne ... these are just a few of the myriad Native American tribes and nations that developed their own cultures and unique ways of life long before the white man discovered the "New World." The many histories of the American Indian are as rich and varied as the histories of the many different peoples who later inhabited the North American continent. Indian art, Indian values, reverence for nature, and Indian culture influence America even today, and these treasures provide a rich heritage for all Americans to share. Though the passage of time has changed and blended many of the old traditional styles, some still endure today as the most sacred of tribal secrets.
