Paying Homage to America's Indigenous People

This November and throughout the year, we pay tribute to the rich culture and heritage of Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian who have deeply enriched the quality and character of our Nation.

America is a vast land of many cultures dating back thousands of years to the original inhabitants of the land.

According to Los Angeles County, California is home to more Native Americans than any other state in the United States. The City of Los Angeles holds the second largest percentage of Native Americans, and is home to three Native American Indian tribes that predate the establishment of California Missions: the Ventureño, Gabrieleño, and Fernandeño.

PBS SoCal and KCET invite you to discover the stories and cultural heritage of America's indigenous people with a month-long line up of exclusive programs and digital content.
