Celebrating Native American heritage
In November, we observe Native American Heritage Month, and the diverse cultures, traditions, histories and important contributions of Native American people. Throughout the month, we encourage employees to learn more about Native American heritage and culture in an effort to further our own culture of inclusion for all employees and clients.
For years, Bank of America has supported museums and exhibits that pay tribute to Native American heritage and culture. Highlights include:
- We’ve supported the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian since its creation and are a sponsor of an ongoing exhibition at the museum, “Nation to Nation: Treaties between the United States and American Indian Nations” on display through 2021.
- We are a Silver Level Donor to the National Native American Veteran Memorial project and the Lead Sponsor of the project’s public programming series and oral history workshops.
- In 2015, we provided the Heard Museum of Phoenix with a grant to conserve eight sculptures by important Native American artists.
