The American Indian Heritage Celebration, with support from its community partners the North Carolina Commission of Indian Affairs and the North Carolina American Indian Commission has been the culminating event in honor of American Indian Heritage Month in North Carolina for more than 25 years.

With a VIRTUAL Education Day on Friday and an IN-PERSON festival on Saturday, multiple demonstrations, presentations, and performances highlight the traditional and contemporary artistic, scientific, historic, and cultural contributions of American Indians in North Carolina. The consistent theme and message of AIHC, as expressed by its Advisory Board, is visibility: Indigenous people are still here!
