Native American Heritage Month

The month of November is Native American Heritage Month. It is a celebration that honors the unique heritage of this continent's First People, and reaffirming the commitment to respect each tribe's sovereignty and cultural identity.

There is a deep, rich Native American history in the State of Minnesota going back 10,000 years. Minnesota is home to eleven Tribal Nations and a resilient and robust urban Native American community. Along with the Dakota people and Anishinaabe people, the Ho-Chunk, Cheyenne, Oto, Iowa, Hidatsa, Arikara, A’aninin, Cree, Blackfeet, Assiniboine, and the Sac and Fox tribes also acknowledge Minnesota as important to their tribal histories.
