Native American Heritage Month


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all events for this Heritage month have gone virtual or been cancelled. Although unable to meet in groups, we are dedicated to celebrating the culture Native Americans bring to our campus. 

Native Americans have heavily influenced and made tremendous contributions to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. For the duration of the month of November, we celebrate these individuals and the diversity they add to our nation and Dustdevil family.


Heritage Spotlights

Our Dustdevil Diversity Spotlight series continues to expand since its introduction in early 2020. While there may not be content just yet for Native American Heritage Month, we promise to deliver some this November. In the mean time, visit our Dustdevil Diversity Spotlight page to view our current collection of stories.
