November 26, 2021 – November is a month dedicated to recognizing the contributions of Native Americans. Last year, people who identified as American Indian or Alaska Native alone, and in combination with another race, reached more than nine million, according to the U.S. Census. A step in acknowledging native people was recently taken by the Biden Administration, which issued the first-ever presidential proclamation of Indigenous Peoples Day. Yet, Native communities are often overlooked. Stereotypes, myths and misunderstanding of Tribes are still very much part of public perception. This week, correspondent Antonia Gonzales talks with some members of the Native community about how we can all celebrate Native people without promoting stereotypes or appropriating their culture.
