Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Native American Heritage Month

Each November, the Student Life Multicultural Center sponsors programming for Native American Heritage Month (NAHM) which celebrates and educates students, staff, faculty and allies about the diversity within over 562 Nations/Tribes that were here before, during and after contact.

There will be a variety of events including Alternative Thanksgiving, a Thanksgiving alternative/harvest celebration, a highlighted event sponsored collaboratively between the American Indian Council (AIC) and American Indian Student Initiatives (AISI). All programs are held in the Student Life Multicultural Center Alonso Family Room unless otherwise indicated.
