Native American Heritage Month at FLC

Native American Heritage Month is an acknowledgment of the resiliency of Indigenous Peoples through art, culture, food, music, tradition, and well-being.

We celebrate the contribution and impact Indigenous Peoples have had on global perspectives from time immemorial to the present day. This month creates the opportunity to empower future generations to embrace, educate, and engage in dialogue regarding the Indigenous ways of life.

All Nations Flag Display, November 1 – 17

Location: Student Union – Animas Lounge

Tribal flags representing Indigenous sovereign nations/communities will be displayed in the Student Union in the Animas Lounge. These flags have been donated to the Native American Center by tribal nations/communities. To donate a tribal flag, please contact the Native American Center at or 970-247-7221.
