Sinema-Backed Bipartisan Resolution Honors Native American Heritage Month

Nov 5, 2021

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored a bipartisan Senate resolution honoring the heritages and cultures of Native Americans by designating November as Native American Heritage Month.
“Our bipartisan resolution honors the 22 federally recognized tribes in Arizona and celebrates Native Americans’ heritage and incredible contributions to our state and country,” said Sinema.
The Sinema-backed bipartisan resolution honors the heritages, cultures, achievements, and contributions of Native Americans and their ancestors to the United States. This resolution also designates the Friday after Thanksgiving as Native American Heritage Day.
In October, Sinema applauded the nomination of Shelly Lowe—a citizen of the Navajo Nation who grew up on the Navajo Reservation in Ganado, Arizona—who, if confirmed, would be the first Native American to serve as Chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
