Pride Month across Native America
For Pride Month, Dennis Zotigh, a cultural specialist at the museum, invited people to share how their Native nation’s traditional culture saw its LGBTQ members. A Chiricahua Apache friend replied, “Now, Dennis, this is a human question.” We agree. But we also appreciate hearing what Native Americans have learned, reconstructed, or been unable to reconstruct about this part of our shared history and experience. New on Smithsonian Voices. 

Film Screening and Q&A: Sisters Rising

American Indian Magazine Honors Indigenous Journalists
The Summer issue of American Indian is a tribute to Native media professionals, particularly journalists and photojournalists who are closest to the issues impacting Indigenous peoples.
