Celebrate American Indian Heritage Month

More than 23 programs, tours, workshops and performing arts events, ranging from dance lessons and films to a comedy performance, will mark American Indian Heritage Month at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Gov. Bev Perdue is scheduled to sign a proclamation declaring November American Indian Heritage Month in North Carolina on Thursday (Nov. 3).

UNC events are free and on campus unless otherwise noted. Find campus locations.

American Indian Heritage Month was first proclaimed by President George H. W. Bush in 1990. It recognizes contemporary American Indian tribes and individuals as active participants in American society and honors their histories, cultures and achievements. November marks a time to note the existence of Indian tribes and reflect on their significance in American history and contributions to American culture.
