Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month celebrates the diverse cultures, traditions, and history and honors the important contributions of Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Island communities in the United States. The month of November is a time to reflect and raise awareness for the vast achievements of America’s indigenous peoples. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed into law a joint resolution designating the month of November as the first National American Indian Heritage Month (later recognized as Native American Heritage Month).

Please join us as we acknowledge and celebrate the rich histories and important contributions of our nation’s first people. Check out this article published by Mariam Aburdeineh to learn about how George Mason is partnering with Indigenous nations to promote environmental resilience.
