For those wanting to learn about and connect with American Indian heritage, Carolina’s American Indian Center is promoting a variety of events ranging from personal motivation sessions to discussion about a new space on campus to a virtual celebration.

The events include live “Motivational Monday” sessions each Monday through the center’s Facebook page. The Facebook page will also include posts about other events.

  • A Nov. 18 Zoom session from 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m. that will feature an overview and discussion about a new cultural garden space on campus.
  • The North Carolina Museum of History’s American Indian Heritage Celebration on Nov. 20 and 21.
