Volunteers unfolded a panel of the National AIDS Memorial Quilt during a small, private ceremony March 20 to commemorate National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and honor American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians across the United States and Territorial Areas lost to the disease. The event was held at the National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, which is the steward of the quilt. People can view the exhibition honoring Native lives here. It is featured as part of a 50-state virtual exhibition of the quilt that was launched on World AIDS Day and features more than 10,000 quilt panels.
