Native American Heritage Month!

Posted by Tim on November 3, 2022 in Community Announcements, Student experience, Uncategorized

November is Native American Heritage Month!  In recognition of the incredibly rich cultures, traditions and contributions of Native people, the Intercultural Diversity Center is leading UB’s on-campus celebration throughout the month of November. 

Tomorrow, Thursday November 3rd, IDC will be hosting Sand Paint N’ Create at 3pm in 240 Student Union.  Sand painting as an art form is a painting that is created by using finely crushed materials that are typically applied to plywood, in our case, it would be colorful sand to canvases, to depict a scene.  They are very intentional from the colors to the symbols that are used.  Take time to relax with us, and partake in the appreciation of this practice as we learn about the ethnic groups that use it and its religious and artistic uses.

You can view all the events, as well as a special Spotify playlist of Native American music, at this link:
