According to the Division for Diversity and Inclusion, “The holiday recognizes hundreds of different tribes and approximately 250 languages, and celebrates the history, tradition, and values of American Indians. National American Indian Heritage Month serves as a reminder of the positive effect native peoples have had on the cultural development and growth of the U.S., as well as the struggles and challenges they have faced.”

The Office of Multicultural Programs at Missouri State will be hosting events all month long to observe Native American Heritage Month.
