Native American Heritage Month
Every November we celebrate and acknowledge the Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian history, culture, and heritage that makes up a fundamental part of the land that we think of as the United States of America.
The City of San Rafael and most of Marin County occupy traditional Coast Miwok land, and the Bay Area has always been home to many more indigenous populations. If you’re curious about other territories in North America and around the world, Native Land is a great map tool for exploring North America’s native cultures and languages.
The Native American Heritage Month website has plenty of resources, online exhibits, and virtual events planned for this year, so be sure to check them out. If you’re looking for some new reads, check out our list focused on Indigenous Culture & History!
