Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep. 15-Oct. 15) and American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month (November) celebrate the histories and cultures of American Indian and Alaska Native, Latina/o/x and Hispanic Americans.

On October 11, Windowfront Exhibitions stands with Native communities in honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day |Dia de las Indigenas. This day raises awareness of the true history while celebrating the culture and resilience of Native people. In 2020, Mayor Vinis proclaimed in support of Indigenous Peoples Day, “...ask the residents of Eugene to utilize this day as an opportunity to reflect on the ongoing struggles of Indigenous people of this land, to celebrate the thriving cultures and values of Indigenous Peoples of our region, and stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples…". It is in this spirit that Windowfront Exhibitions stands in solidarity with Indigenous peoples elsewhere.
