Happy Native American Heritage Month: The month of November celebrates the diverse and rich culture, history and traditions of Native people. The observance is also a time to educate anyone and everyone about different tribes, raise awareness about the struggles Native people faced, as well as in the present.

There are no HRA courses this month, however members can enroll in future classes via ARCNet or by coordinating with the Wing HRA.

More information regarding courses can be found on the 182nd HRA page found in the virtual newsletter or Wing SharePoint.
