UB Celebrates Native American/Indigenous Peoples Month

Nov 03, 2021

The University of Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with other units across our campus, acknowledges the month of November as Native American History Month (NAHM). To commemorate NAHM, the College is offering student-centered events, programming, and resources that honor the diverse histories and achievements of Indigenous peoples both nationally and internationally. This year we offer programming and resources that acknowledge the historical traumas and injustices committed against Indigenous peoples, while affirming the sovereignty of Indigenous nations and promoting Indigenous futurities.

Native American Studies has had a rich history at UB since 1972, thanks to the advocacy of Haudenosaunee scholars and activists, including John Mohawk (Seneca), Oren Lyons (Onondaga), Barry White (Seneca), and Marilyn Schindler (Seneca). Building on this tremendous legacy, the new Department of Indigenous Studies provides a space for Indigenous students, faculty, staff and community members to gather and promote scholarly, educational, and outreach initiatives intended to ensure the continuity of Indigenous knowledges and languages, as well as the health and sustainability of land, water, and Indigenous peoples. As the University at Buffalo operates on the traditional territory of the Seneca Nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, it is our duty as a campus community to uphold and celebrate the long-standing history of Indigenous contributions in the Western New York area, nationally and globally.
