Host Emily Graslie travels to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science to discuss peace medals with archaeologist Dr. Steve Nash. These medals were given to Native American tribes by Europeans and Americans between the mid-1700s and early 1900s. Often the tribes receiving the medal pledged allegiance to the country giving the medal. Graslie and Nash discuss some of the medals on display at the museum. Part of "The Brain Scoop" series.
