Native Americans honored in San Francisco

November 2009 KQED Presents American Indian Hertiage Month

KQED proudly celebrates the richness and diversity of the greater San Francisco Bay Area by commemorating November, American Indian Heritage Month. During the month of November, KQED Public TV 9 schedules a special lineup of programs focused on American Indian themes and issues. These programs are highlighted in a guide along with listings of community resources and local events.

We are honored to be partnering with The San Francisco Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services, Friendship House Association of American Indians, Native American AIDS Project and Native American Health Center to celebrate the rich culture of the American Indian community. Please join us on Thursday, November 12, 2009 from 5pm-7:30pm at the San Francisco City Hall Rotunda for dancing, drumming and a special awards ceremony where we will honor local heroes doing outstanding work in the American Indian community.
