National Bar Association proudly celebrates Native American Heritage Month

This November, in honor of Native American Heritage Month, the National Bar Association, would like to recognize the many Native legal leaders, scholars, and activists. We pay tribute to the rich ancestry, traditions and contributions of our Indigenous brothers and sisters.

To mark this time, we honor the work of esteemed legal leaders like Mary Smith, ABA President, John Echohawk, Founder and Executive Director of the Native American Rights Fund, Makalika Naholowa’a, President of the National Native American Bar Association, Secretary Deb. Haaland, Congresswoman Sharice Davids and the many others addressing the needs of Indian country.

The National Bar Association recognizes the sovereignty of tribal nations and the needs facing Indian Country. We remain in solidarity with the Indigenous activists and leaders who continue to advocate for the needs of their nations.
