It’s Native American Heritage Month
- Race refers to the things we can see outwardly, such as skin color, hair texture, facial features, and eye color. It’s assigned by society based on physical features.
- Ethnicity is based on the social and cultural group you identify with. It includes the cultural practices, customs, and traditions shared by a group of people, such as language, nationality, heritage, religion, and dress.
- Let the story of Annie Dodge Wauneka, tribal leader of the Navajo Nation, who delivered fruits and veggies to Navajo families inspire your infant and toddler to try new healthy foods.
- Share your favorite songs with your preschooler and turn up the volume on music from your own heritage, like musician, Radmilla Cody of the Navajo Nation.
- Break out the art supplies so your school-age child can make their own invention like Thomas David Petite of Chippewa Tribe—he has more than 100 U.S. patents pending.
