November is Native and Indigenous Heritage Month!
Native and Indigenous Heritage Month, also known as American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month allows us to celebrate the many diverse cultures within Native and Indigenous communities. Although we all come together as Native peoples at our core, every tribe, nation, and clan has their own traditional ways of life and culture. NIHM at UConn is a time for our community to be represented in spaces of different topics and interests significant to Native cultures. We use the month to bring our Husky community together to learn about and uplift all Native peoples.
