Native American History

Native American Heritage Month

Angelo State University is proud to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. On November 1, 2022, President Ronnie D. Hawkins Jr. acknowledged the indigenous territories upon which we educate. This Research Guide serves to honor Native Americans and inform the ASU community about their importance, emphasizing the indigenous Texas Peoples.
