September 15 – October 15 is Latinx Heritage Month at the U, and the Latinx Initiatives planning committee has an engaging calendar of activities developed for campus and throughout the community. The committee settled on the theme “Muchas historias, muchas voces”–Many histories, many voices–“Muitas historias, muitas vozes” for this year because they wanted to recognize the importance of the collective histories in the Latinx/e and Hispanic community and how they keep shaping their lives in the present.
November is Native American Heritage Month. The month is a time to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories of the 574 Federally Recognized Tribal Nations and to acknowledge the important contributions of Indigenous peoples. Native American Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to overcome these challenges.
