November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly referred to — American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month. This is a time to honor their diverse and rich cultures, histories, and traditions, and appreciate the immeasurable contributions they have made to our country.
This is also an opportune time to become more aware of the unique challenges Native people have faced over time and how they have worked to overcome those challenges. Throughout this month, let’s commit to supporting our Native American communities and celebrating November 25, 2022, as Native American Heritage Day.
