Native American Heritage Month is a yearly opportunity to learn about Native peoples and cultures, and to celebrate the gifts that they bring to our life and society. We especially encourage you to consider hosting a Blanket Exercise at your church—whether that be during a worship service, in an adult education class, at a council meeting, in Sunday school, or at a special event.
These worship resources are for use on any Sunday during November (Native American Heritage Month). Though this month is only officially recognized in the United States, these resources have been developed with both Canada and the United States in mind. In Canada, Aboriginal Sunday is recognized yearly on the Sunday nearest to National Aboriginal Day (June 21) and the Canadian Indigenous Ministry Committee puts together worship resources for that date.
Let’s get to know each other. Let’s live into the reality of the family we already are in Christ.
