News Type:  Weekly Spark, Weekly Spark Announcement

November is National Native American Heritage Month—a time to honor the richness and diversity of tribal cultures and traditions and to acknowledge the significant contributions of Native people. It is also a time to raise awareness about the unique challenges tribal communities have faced, such as an ongoing history of oppression, and the innovative ways they have addressed them. This month, join us in highlighting resources to help support the strength, well-being, and resilience of Native communities:

  • Watch our webinar on supporting tribal youth at risk for suicide.
  • Read a joint statement on the Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative report.
  • Learn how media representations of Native communities can prompt healing conversations about mental health.
  • Find guidance on working with tribal communities to develop culturally relevant suicide prevention strategies.
