November is rightfully Native American Heritage Month, a.k.a. Native American Indian Heritage Month. Instead of buying into the lie that is the “Thanksgiving story,” we invite you to take this month to learn more about Native Americans, their history and culture, and of course, to give back.
A perfect opportunity to do this is on Giving Tuesday, which is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (which falls on December 3 this year), but any day is wonderful to support our Indigenous brothers and sisters. To assist you in finding a great and worthy cause to donate to, we put together a list of 15 organizations that are making a difference in the lives of American Indian people, their communities, and the world at large.
