Native American Hall of Honor Seeks Nominations


BISMARCK, N.D. — The nomination process is now open for the 2021 North Dakota Native American Hall of Honor. Located in the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum in Bismarck, the Native American Hall of Honor is an annual program and exhibit recognizing Native Americans who have gone above and beyond in representing their tribe and culture. The program is a partnership of the State Historical Society of North Dakota, the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission, and the State Historical Society Foundation.
 
This program recognizes traditional and contemporary achievements in these categories:  Arts and Culture, Athletics, Leadership, Legendary Leader, and Military/Veterans. Nominees can be living or in memoriam. The deadline for nominations is April 5, 2021, at 5 p.m.
 
“This program celebrates the significant contributions of Native Americans, past and present, in North Dakota,” said Scott Davis, executive director of the ND Indian Affairs Commission. “This is an opportunity to nominate someone in your community who deserves recognition.”
 
The vetting process will be competitive, with only up to two people per category accepted into the Hall of Honor each year. The honoring ceremony, either live or virtual, will be Sept. 9, 2021, as part of the Tribal Summit and United Tribes’ International Powwow. Recipients will be featured in an annual exhibit at the State Museum.
