Native American Indian Heritage Month is in November

The University of Maryland and the Office of Multicultural Involvement & Community Advocacy celebrates Native American Indian History Month this November with the theme, “No Justice on Stolen Land.”

Events this month include the Heritage Month Kickoff: 5th Annual Maryland Commission on Indian Affairs Ceremony on Thursday, November 1 in the Stamp Colony Ballroom. The celebration will encourage a reflection on the history, achievements, and contributions of the Native American, Indigenous, and Tribal communities in Maryland and will include a panel discussion on "American Indians Thriving in Maryland", cultural performances, presentation of special awards, and much more.

Be sure not to miss the Native Roots Monologue event on November 7 in the Adele’s space in the Stamp. There you can join AISU, the American Indian Student Union, & TOTUS Spoken Word Experience for a night of poetry.

Native American Indian History Month events end with Black Indigeneity in Conversation: Reimagining Justice, a panel discussion examining justice within Blackness and Indigenous identities, on November 27 in the Prince George's Room of the Stamp.
