The American Indian College Fund is hosting a free streaming concert in celebration of Native American Heritage Month on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at 7 p.m. MDT. The event will feature performances by local and non-local entertainers and artists, allied with local causes from across the nation.

Performances and stories by local artists include Taboo, Brooke Simpson, James Jones (“Notorious Cree”), Frank Waln, Raye Zaragoza, Martha Redbone, The Halluci Nation, Zahn McClarnon and Amber Midthunder. Non-Indigenous friends and allies include Lukas Nelson, Téa Leoni, Bill Camp and others creating shared spaces and opportunities where Indigenous perspectives are welcomed, heard and valued to create greater visibility and inclusion for Indigenous people.

Indigenous students consistently share that one of the greatest challenges in their education and life is not seeing and hearing the indigenous people. The American Indian College Fund works to create a nation where First Nations people are visible, their voices are heard, and their contributions are valued—in higher education, in their careers, in our communities, and in the nation.
