Rep. Luján Statement Recognizing National Native American Heritage Month

Congressman Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico’s Third District released the following statement today in recognition of National Native American Heritage Month, celebrated each year during the month of November:

“Every November, we come together to recognize the timeless history and heritage of Native Americans in New Mexico and across the country. The foundation of our entire nation has been indelibly shaped by the language, culture, art, and faith of our indigenous brothers and sisters. It is one of my greatest honors to represent the 19 Pueblos and two Apache nations of New Mexico, as well as the Eastern Agency of the Navajo Nation.”
