National Native American Heritage Month

Nov. 1, 2022

Happy National Native American Heritage Month! Since 1986, the United States has honored over 12,000 years of Native American history, culture, and art every year in November. This month provides a time to reflect, educate, and expand your knowledge of Native American culture. With 22 federally recognized tribes in Arizona, there are plenty of Native American cultures and voices to learn from! Throughout the month, Arizona State University will be uplifting Native American voices with presentations from Tribal communities across the state. To learn more about the history of Native American culture throughout local and national tribal communities, explore over 18,000 photographs from The Bureau of Indian Affairs! For more information about indigenous art, food, stories, and heritage, check out IndigiWellbeing, an organization that focuses on strengthening Indigenous communities through wellness events! Although Native American Heritage Month officially ends at the end of November, continue celebrating and learning more about Indigenous culture–  join the two-day Arizona Indian Festival in February 2023!
