National Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month recognizes the histories, invaluable contributions and livelihood of American Indian and Alaska Native people in the United States. During this observance, we honor the rich diversity of American Indian and Alaska Native cultures, traditions and languages and how it intersects with health. By working together to raise awareness of health disparities, particularly in type 2 diabetes and childhood obesity, and by providing a platform for national American Indian and Alaska Native health organizations to discuss challenges and opportunities, we help move communities toward health equity.
