San Juan College celebrates Native American Heritage Month all November long

November is Native American Heritage month and the Native American Center (NAC) at San Juan College will be celebrating with activities for the entire community on the Farmington campus. There is something for everyone with free meals, a craft fair and a health fair all available to the public.

“Native American Heritage month is a great way for many of our students to celebrate their background and also to educate others about Native American culture,” Michele Peterson, director of the Native American Center, said.

The NAC will host its Feed the Community event on November 13. At least three different types of stew will be served with frybread. The event is open to the community and will take place in the Native American Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On November 19, the NAC will host a free health fair with health screenings, nutrition information, diabetes screenings and a blood drive. The health fair is open to the public and will be held in multiple rooms on the Farmington campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Stop by the NAC for more information on November 19

The heritage month events will wrap up on November 21 with a craft fair in the Suns Room from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors can purchase a booth for the fair filling out the application online at or by stopping by the NAC on the Farmington campus.
