MSC Southeast honors Native American Heritage Month throughout November

Native American DancerAmerica is a vast land of many cultures dating back thousands of years to the original inhabitants of the land. The history, heritage, and culture of Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians are part of communities across the country today.

"This November and every month, we celebrate the culture and heritage of the indigenous Americans who deeply enrich the quality and character of our nation, state, and region. Our campuses are located on former native lands," said Interim President Larry Lundblad. "Like many other underrepresented populations in this country, much of their story is rarely told in our public settings or taught in its entirety in our schools."

The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum have joined forces to create a website -- nativeamericanheritagemonth.gov -- that serves as a comprehensive source for exploring the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans.

Many special virtual events will be offered on the website throughout the month including webinars, a Native Cinema Showcase, and art exhibits.
