Honoring Native Amerians
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The Native American Hall of Honor recognizes Native Americans who have made a significant impact in representing their tribe or culture.
The North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission is calling for nominations for candidates to be inducted for 2021. The program categories recognize contemporary and traditional achievements in arts and culture, athletics, military leadership and legendary leadership.
Executive Director Scott Davis said, “The program celebrates the significant contributions of Native Americans past and present in North Dakota.”
The nomination applications are available at indianaffairs.gov, or by calling the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission at 701-328-2428. The deadline to submit is April 5.
There will be an honoring ceremony for this year’s recipients during the United Tribes Pow Wow in September.
