This is the 13th year that Clark College has coordinated and hosted an event in honor of Native American Heritage Month. It is one of four annual signature events hosted by the college to celebrate diverse cultures.

It is the way of caring and preserving for the Seventh Generation, which is a truly sustainable practice.”
