Indigenous Peoples' Heritage Month
UNF observes Indigenous Peoples' Heritage Month, commonly known as National Native American Heritage Month or American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month, during the month of November. Recognizing the historical connotations associated with the use of the terms, “native" and "American,” the Intercultural Center for Peace chooses to use the term “indigenous peoples” in recognition of the shared identity amongst individuals who lived together in community before countries, states or regions were officially classified and named. Events, programs and activities hosted throughout the observance month are focused on celebrating the rich history and cultural traditions of indigenous persons living in what we know today as the United States of America.
Check back here in November for a full list of our events.
