Fiesta Spokane was just the beginning. The City of Spokane continues its series of multicultural celebrations during Native American Heritage Month!
Did you know at least 339 tribes, bands and nations are represented in Spokane? During the month of November, we honor all of Spokane's members of American Indian, Alaskan Native, and First Nation peoples. We honor all local and regional tribes of the Inland Northwest including the Spokane Tribe, the Colville Confederation Tribes, the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, the Kootenai Tribe, the Kalispel Tribe, the Nez Perce Tribe, the Yakama Nation, and the Umatilla Tribe. The City's observance of Native American Heritage Month celebrates the cultural heritage and contributions from these diverse peoples which have significantly influenced and enriched the Spokane area.
The Nationally recognized heritage month is also a time to recognize and honor Native-run or Native-serving businesses, non-profits, health clinics, education institutions, programs and departments, community groups, and volunteers serving the needs and highlighting the cultures of indigenous peoples throughout our region.
Native American Heritage Month events throughout the month of November include fundraisers, a gala, film screenings, an autumn craft fair, culture nights, and more.
Join us all November long. Help us recognize, honor, and celebrate Native American Heritage!
