Tuesday’s opening of the National Museum of the American Indian was a big day for the entire nation, not just the people honored at the new structure. Thousands and thousands of people flocked to the nation’s capital to witness the opening of what is likely to be the last museum built on the National Mall. Among those taking in the scene were Brice Michel (left) and Evan Tobin, who managed to capture themselves on camera in front of the museum.
