November is Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month, which is often referred to as American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month. For more than 30 years, our country has commemorated this month as a time to celebrate the culture, achievements, and traditions of Native peoples.
We acknowledge that the University of Nevada, Reno is situated on the traditional homelands of the Numu (Northern Paiute), Wašiw (Washoe), Newe (Western Shoshone), and Nuwu (Southern Paiute) peoples. These lands continue to be a gathering place for Indigenous Peoples and we recognize their deep connections to these places. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and learn on their territory.
