Oklahoma is home to 39 federally-recognized Native American sovereign nations. The City of Norman is proud to recognize October 11 as Indigenous Peoples Day and encourages all citizens, neighbors, and friends to reflect on the rich cultural value Native American culture provides to our community and world.
This recognition of Indigenous Peoples Day allows us to continue with a commitment of progress and inclusion. There are many local opportunities for learning and experiencing more of Native American culture. Visit the OU American Indian Programs & Services Facebook page for more information on events happening. In addition, with the recent opening of the First Americans Museum, there are many special events open to the public. For more information on these, check out famok.org for live and virtual events.
