Celebrate Native American Heritage Month

Native American Center

Events celebrating and honoring Native American Heritage Month are taking place across the Washington State University System throughout November.

The WSU community can enjoy events ranging from meals centered on traditional ingredients to talks and film screenings revolving around the cultures and histories of regional Tribes and Native Nations.

A virtual lecture examining WSU’s Land-Grant history, the appropriation of Native American lands, and how communities can strive for a more equitable future will be given from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Nov. 6 by Zoe Higheagle Strong, vice provost for Native American Relations and Programs & Tribal Liaison to the President. Registration is available online, with the event open to all members of the WSU community.
