Michigan Tech Celebrates Native American History

This November, the Michigan Tech campus community is celebrating Native American Heritage Month.

Native American Heritage Month is observed every year to recognize the significant contributions Native Americans have made in our nation’s history and to share some of the culture’s unique traditions.

From making quill earrings to learning about the Ojibwe language, there are many educational events planned.

The following events are scheduled for the month-long celebration:

  • Quill Earring Night, Nov. 16, 5-7 p.m., Hamar House
  • Wild Rice Journey Native Plant Restoration, Nov. 29, 5-7 p.m., Memorial Union Ballroom (Ojibwe wild rice and fry bread will be served)
  • Introduction to the Ojibwe Language, Nov. 30, noon-1 p.m., Hamar House

All events are free and open to the public.

If you plan to attend either Quill Earring Night or Wild Rice Journey Plant Restoration, please email loriann@mtu.edu to RSVP.
