Native American Heritage Month

Hixson Mound (TVA)

Every year, our Nation pauses to reflect on the profound ways the First Americans have shaped our country's character and culture. The first stewards of our environment, early voices for the values that define our Nation, and models of government to our Founding Fathers -- American Indians and Alaska Natives helped build the very fabric of America. Today, their spirit and many contributions continue to enrich our communities and strengthen our country. During National Native American Heritage Month, we honor their legacy.

Chattanooga State is sponsoring several Native American cultural events. The events are:

  • Vaughn EagleBear, Monday, November 14.  KLIC at 11:00 & OMN 124 at 6:30.
  • Stephen Graham Jones, Tuesday, November 15.  KLIC at 11 & Health Science Center at 6:30.
  • Dr. Jason Huddleston, Chautauqua Series, Thursday, November 17.  Library mobile classroom at 4:00.
