November is Native American Heritage Month! One way to celebrate the rich history, traditions, ongoing culture, stewardship of these lands and the diverse and essential contributions of our Native peoples to today’s society is to immerse ourselves in their art and stories.
November 12-18 provides just this opportunity with 7 days of the best in Native film.
The National Museum of the American Indian’s Native Cinema Showcase hosts this annual celebration, and this year’s showcase focuses on Native people boldly asserting themselves through language, healing, building community, and a continued relationship with the land. Activism lies at the heart of all these stories.
Also, November 23-30 provides another opportunity through PBS’ special collection of films and programs celebrating Native American Heritage Month. Through dance, family traditions, art, and music, these stories show both the contemporary diversity and long history of Indigenous people across the land we now call the United States.
Join us in celebrating the rich, living culture and contribution of our Native peoples!
