There are 6.8 million Native Americans and Alaska Natives living in the United States, as well as millions more Indigenous people living throughout the Western Hemisphere, all with unique traditions, languages, values, and histories. During November—Native American Heritage Month—the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., and New York City celebrates the diversity and contributions of these Native cultures with free festivals and concerts, curators’ talks, and family activities. For those unable to attend in person, the museum is webcasting many of these public programs live and archiving them online.
