Native American Heritage Month 2006

As part of our ongoing commitment to history and culture, WSIU Public Broadcasting is pleased to take part in a month-long Native American Heritage Celebration in partnership with the SIU Native American Student Organization and other University departments.

This celebration brings an opportunity for the people of this region to learn about the rich heritage of native American cultures, with an open invitation to participate in a wide variety of community events throughout November.

From art to agriculture, from photography to policy making, and from cooking to cultural identity, these Southern Illinois University Native American Heritage Month events will explore historical and contemporary experiences of indigenous people in America.

Additionally, to complement and extend the community learning experience, WSIU Public Television will broadcast many special programs each week.
