Native American Heritage Month: AIANTA’s Intern Heads to Laguna Pueblo to Learn About New Cultures First Hand
November is National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month – a time designated for celebrating the rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories of America’s Native peoples.
AIANTA views this month as an opportune time for education, awareness and acknowledgment of the important contributions of Native peoples to the U.S.
One great way to celebrate this November is to learn about the Native histories and cultures throughout the country through travel. The true histories of America’s First peoples are best told from their own voices and perspectives. AIANTA’s current intern, Chunyu Lin, is new to New Mexico and has taken this opportunity to do just that – visit local people in the area and learn about their diverse cultures through first hand conversations and experiences.
Read on for some of Chunyu’s favorite parts of her conversation with Ted Pedro, Executive Director of the American Indian Chamber of Commerce of New Mexico, and all that she learned about Laguna Pueblo
