November is Native American Heritage Month: Celebrate Our Past, Protect Our Future
November is Native American Heritage Month. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the various cultures, art, religions, languages, music, and traditions of this land’s Native peoples.
Over fifty years ago, the Native American Rights Fund was created to support tribes and Native American people with effective legal assistance as they fought to protect culture, people, lands, sovereignty, and rights. Over the years, we have seen some great successes: defending water rights, developing tribal education, protecting graves and sacred places, to name a few. As we celebrate this month, we honor that past and the progress made. However, we also recognize that there are battles ahead.
We are committed to protecting Native American rights, resources, and lifeways. We are committed to honoring our Native American heritage.
