The Burke holds deep respect for Indigenous knowledge, and is dedicated to collaborating with Native communities, sharing collections and learning together.
November is the national Native American Heritage Month—a wonderful opportunity to highlight and celebrate the heritage of Native peoples in our state, region and country. The Burke sits on Indigenous lands and recognizes the government-to-government nature of our relationship with sovereign nations. We celebrate the opportunity to promote respect for culture, generate new knowledge, and inspire people to value their connection with all life.
We encourage you to continue your learning of Native American cultures by reaching out to your local tribe for more resources.
