K-State celebrates Native American Heritage Month

Submitted by Trumanue Lindsey

The month of November is nationally recognized as Native American Heritage Month. Originally referred to as American Indian Week, it was expanded to a monthlong celebration by congress and President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

During Native American Heritage Month, we take the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the numerous sacrifices, achievements and contributions Indigenous and Native peoples have made and continue to make in this country.

As the first land-grant institution and occupants of Indigenous land, it is important that we take the time as a university to continue to educate ourselves and celebrate the rich and vibrant traditions of Indigenous and Native communities.

Programs will be added soon at k-state.edu/diversity/life/events/
