Happy Native American Heritage Month! Iowa is home to the Meskwaki Nation. This community is of Algonquian (pronounced al-gone-kwin) origin from the Eastern Woodland Culture areas. After fighting in the Fox Wars and being relocated multiple times, the Meskwaki formally purchased land in Tama County, Iowa, which gave them formal federal identity as the “Sac & Fox of the Mississippi in Iowa.” Every August, the Meskwaki Nation holds their annual Powwow featuring dancing, singing, food, art, remembering, and much more. All are welcome to attend and celebrate the Meskwaki community.

Happy Native American Heritage Month! November is a time to celebrate the cultures, accomplishments, and contributions of Native American and Indigenous nations. The best way to celebrate this month is by listening to and learning from Indigenous and native voices, past and present. At Lincoln, you can also sign up to take a semester-long course with Ms. Harmon called Indigenous Peoples’ History to learn even more.
