Inside the Issue - October / November 2018

The Native American Heritage Issue

Welcome to the Native American Heritage Issue. October and November are packed with events and celebrations for Indian Country. Not only is it Native American Heritage Month, Native American Heritage Day and Rock Your Moccs Week, it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although we should be celebrating our heritages every day of the year, we decided to feature those who are constantly sharing their beautiful culture with the world through their respective mediums.
