November is Native American Heritage Month, but every day is an opportunity to learn more about the ethnic and cultural groups with roots that date back thousands of years here in this land that became the United States.
As President Barack Obama said in a November 2012 proclamation:
“As the first people to live on the land we all cherish, American Indians and Alaska Natives have profoundly shaped our country’s character and our cultural heritage.”
This week, DOE held a celebratory event recognizing contributions Native Americans have made to this country and to DOE’s mission. The keynote speaker was Patty Talahongva, a veteran journalist and member of the Hopi tribe.
Talahongva is a founding member of the Hopi Education Endowment Fund and past president of the Native American Journalists Association.
Also during the event, Senior Advisor for Environmental Management David Huizenga spoke about EM’s ongoing relationships with tribal groups across the country. EM has cooperative agreements with more than a dozen tribes throughout the U.S. near various EM field sites. Huizenga emphasized his personal commitment to visit with the tribes on their lands and in their communities to better understand their values, cultures and concerns.
