For Indigenous people across the country, it’s a chance to share the unique ancestry, traditions, and contributions their communities make today and have made throughout history. Particularly noteworthy is the role that Native Americans played in our atomic heritage performing important wartime service in the Manhattan Project.
Further, according to the U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs “this year’s theme, ‘Resilient and Enduring: We Are Native People,’ reflects the determination and courage that Native American Communities continue to exhibit, sustaining the vibrant diversity, cultures, traditions, and accomplishments of America’s first people.”
Additionally, the term indigenuity is worth learning as it is trending at this time. “Indigenuity is the application of deep-spatial wisdom held by Indigenous Peoples, e.g., American Indians and Alaska Natives, to solve practical problems we face today.” #Indigenuity has become a popular hashtag used on various social media platforms as well. Combining knowledge types and techniques can help us come together to solve global challenges.
