There are many ways to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. In this blog post I've highlighted just a few.
There are many films available on Kanopy, a video streaming movie service on our website, that you can access with your library card. After logging in to your account, type "Native American" in the search bar for a list of documentaries.
The Native Land website, created by the Indigenous-led, Canadian non-profit Native Land Digital is a great resource for learning more about Indigenous territories. You can type in your address to learn more about the land where you live or where you grew up.
Segorea Te' Land Trust, an urban, Indigenous woman-led Trust, is another great local resource where you can learn about ways to return Indigenous land to Indigenous people.
The All My Relations podcast "explores Indigeneity in all it's complexities." Each episode, hosted by Matika Wilbur and Adrienne Keene, explores contemporary issues relevant to Native Americans.
And of course there are books! OPL has many to choose from whether you're looking for fiction, cookbooks, memoirs or poetry. Here are some of the new titles written by indigenous authors that were released this year.
