Native American Heritage Speakers

Native American Heritage Speakers

Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Alaska Natives have a long and important history in America. Celebrating their rich heritage through art, writing, and advocacy, these authors, poets, actors, activists, and entrepreneurs are inspirational Native American speakers and popular choices for a wide variety of events. There are roughly five million Native Americans in the United States, from numerous different tribes, each with their own unique cultures and traditions. Covering topics such as climate change, education, and human rights, these Native American voices work to raise awareness about the unique challenges that Indigenous people face, and to acknowledge the important contributions they've made to the diverse traditions and cultures of American society today.
