Pennsylvania should raise understanding of its history and culture among the general people.

Numerous tribal tribes in Pennsylvania were eliminated, some no longer exist, and some still see the state as their native homeland despite being evicted or subjected to oppression.

Officials said Friday that they were announcing a grant-funded program meant to correct the incomplete picture of Pennsylvania’s Native American culture and history caused by the lack of federally recognized tribal nations.

Through a funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Pennsylvania Tourism Office will create a plan to emphasize the state’s Indigenous stories, culture, and history in collaboration with the Institute for Indigenous Studies at Lehigh University and with participation from federally recognized tribes.

When compared to Midwestern states, Pennsylvania lags behind in its understanding of Indigenous culture and history, according to Jason Hale, a scholar with the Institute for Indigenous Studies at Lehigh University. Hale is of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, which is located close to Mayetta, Kansas.

They’ll be able to alter that thanks to the award.

He noted that the center is located within the College of Health, where the research team works to address health and educational inequities among Native Americans. “It comes right under the mission of what we do to connect and to help Indigenous tribal nations grow and become healthier,” he said.
