During November, Native American Heritage Month offers the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the many different Indigenous peoples and cultures throughout North America. It is a month all about learning (and unlearning), celebrating, and honoring Indigenous people, their history, and their presence today, and their ancestral land which we still occupy under settler colonialism. As we honor Native Americans’ ongoing traditions, contributions, and presence, the NTTAC Team also wants to highlight a range of culturally rooted, culturally responsive resources designed to support the health and well-being of Indigenous people and do our part to work towards decolonization.
It is important to acknowledge that we live on stolen land and to learn more about the communities that once inhabited—and still inhabit—your area. However, reconciliation takes action, not just acknowledgement, so please use the information and resources that we've curated to help Native children, youth, and families thrive!
