For Native American and Indigenous Heritage Month 2022, we are seeking to understand how to be a good relative, a teaching woven into many communities. It’s embedded in the teachings that ask us to look to seven generations into the future when making decisions, and to remember our ancestors in the generations before us – how to hold their wisdom, knowledge and perspectives with care and pass it on. It’s embedded in the teachings of kinship and interrelatedness with place, more-than-humans, and people. We encourage participants to consider how they are committed to the values embedded in being a good relative and their relationships to place, water, more-than-humans, community, ancestors, and descendants as they engage with programming throughout the month. 
This year we are continuing to celebrate 30 Days of Indigenous. Everyday throughout the month of November is an opportunity to discover ways to be in relations with, advocate for, and support Native and Indigenous communities.
