• Women's History Month

    Notable Indigenous Women

    Help us celebrate Notiable Indigenous Women from around Alaska and the United States.

    National Women’s History Month traces its roots to March 8, 1857, when women from various New York City factories staged a protest over poor working conditions. The first Women's Day celebration in the United States was in 1909, also in New York City. More than seven decades later, Congress in 1981 established National Women's History Week to be commemorated annually the second week of March. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month and every year since has passed a resolution (and the president has issued a proclamation) designating March Women’s History Month.

    As we celebrate Women’s History Month 2022, we reflect upon the advances Indigenous women have made.  Indigenous women have been involved in making changes in their tribes and communities.  They have broken barriers in the arts, health, and education.  Indigenous women have also fought for substance rights, civil rights, environmental rights, and been involved in public advocacy for the safety and health of our Indigenous women and girls.

    There are many Indigenous Women, but here are a couple from Alaska.
