Native American Heritage Month

National Native American Heritage MonthDuring the month of November, we celebrate National Native American Heritage Month and recognize the contributions, culture, and history of  groups indigenous to  the United States.

On a local level, The City of Chicago recognized Zhigaagong, known today as Chicago, by resolution as always being "an indigenous landscape" on November 14, 2018. The resolution acknowledges that the City sits upon the homeland of the Council of the Three Fires, and that many of the names of our region were provided by these tribes. The contributions of Chicago's Indigenous community continues today, as there are over 75,000 Urban Indians living in the Chicago area.
