"As we celebrate National Native American Heritage Month this November, we recognize Native cultures as innovative, nuanced, and essential elements of our historic and contemporary cultural landscape.

The works of playwright Larissa FastHorse (Sicangu Lakota Nation), composer Raven Chacon (Diné/Navajo), visual artist Wendy Red Star (Apsáalooke (Crow), to name just a few Native artists and culture bearers, help us understand our world from different perspectives.

They offer us windows into diverse ways of thinking, feeling and being--helping us recognize our commonalities and meaningful differences, lifting up our humanity.

We encourage you to seek out and learn more about Native artists this month on NEA social media channels and other resources." — NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson
