Celebrate Native American Heritage Month
The Woods Hole Diversity Advisory Committee and the Falmouth Community invite you to join us in celebrating Native American Heritage Month this November. We are hosting a series of events to pay tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native American Nations, and to encourage active self-education and reflection on the history and human culture of the unceded territories we now call home.
