Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the virus, the NNAHOF joined other Native American communities, sponsors, and state and national partners in working to limit and eradicate the COVID-19 pandemic by canceling the 2020 Induction Ceremony. We were disappointed that we were unable to hold this event but felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global pandemic. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to continuing our mission and hope to celebrate with you in 2021! – Miigwech! 2019 . Native American Hall of Fame 2019 Ceremony from James Parker Shield on Vimeo. 2018 .
