PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – November 2, 2015 – The Office of Multicultural Student Life at St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is hosting two events in recognition of Native American Heritage Month.
Native American Heritage Month is celebrated annually in November and celebrates rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories, and acknowledges the important contributions of native people. The month of November is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise general awareness about the unique challenges native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
These events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Christy Banks at 631.687.4596 or [email protected]
