Recognizing Native American culture and heritage

The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County are proud to join the nationwide celebration of Native American Heritage Month in November. During this month, and throughout the year, we will share stories recognizing the thriving and diverse Native American community calling Los Angeles home.

Join the conversation on social media by sharing your own stories about Native American culture by using #NHMLA and #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth.

Indigenous L.A. 

The Indigenous community in L.A. is here now and will be here always. Join us in conversation with members on their thriving and vibrant community, how they value cross-cultural connections and the ways in which they're striving to revitalize their culture.  The videos below connect to our Becoming Los Angeles exhibition, which explores how people, place, and possibility helped create Los Angeles.
