Located between the Innovation Gallery: Early Peoples and the Inspiration Gallery: Yesterday and Today, the Native American Hall of Honor is an annual program and exhibit recognizing Native Americans who have gone above and beyond in representing their tribe and culture. The program is a partnership of the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission, the State Historical Society of North Dakota, and the State Historical Society Foundation.

The program recognizes traditional and contemporary achievements in four categories: Arts and Culture, Athletics, Leadership, and Military/Veterans. Nominees can be living or in memoriam.

The 2019 nomination process is now open. The deadline for nominations is March 1 at 5 p.m.

The induction ceremony will be held on Sept. 5 as part of the Tribal Summit and United Tribes’ International Powwow.
