BSA Staff Picks: National Native American Heritage Day
The BSA staff is working on learning more about what we can do in our work and personal lives to acknowledge the ancestral lands on which we reside and the Indigenous People we share it with today. In honor of Native American Heritage Day, we would like to share some staff picks—articles, podcasts, movies, and more—relating to Native American rights, culture, and of course, architecture.
We invite you to share your own resources and experiences with us!
To submit a resource or share an experience related to Indigenous culture and/or architecture, please reach out to us at [email protected].
