November is Native American Heritage Month

November is Native American Heritage Month

| By: Britten, Casey T

This November, we celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories of Native Americans.

Native American Heritage Month is a good time to learn more about Native tribes, to raise awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and presently, and to discover how tribal citizens have worked to overcome these challenges.

The FVTC Diversity & Inclusion Services team and the National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC) at Fox Valley Technical College invite you to join us for the following events:

Explore the Tribal Nations of Wisconsin
