27th Annual American Indian Heritage Celebration

November 19, 2022

The American Indian Heritage Celebration, with support from the NC Commission of Indian Affairs, the museum’s community partner, has been the culminating event in honor of American Indian Heritage Month in North Carolina for over 25 years. With an Education Day on Friday and the festival (held in person or virtually) on Saturday, multiple demonstrations, presentations, and performances highlight the traditional and contemporary artistic, scientific, historic, and cultural contributions of American Indians in North Carolina for over 14,000 years. The consistent theme and message of AIHC, as expressed by the AIHC Advisory Board, is visibility: Indigenous people are still here!
