NATIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN HALL OF FAME 2021 Induction Ceremony

The National Native American Hall of Fame held the 2021 Induction Ceremony on Saturday, November 6th at the newly opened First Americans Museum (FAM) in Oklahoma City.  

“We are very excited to recognize the stellar achievements of this year’s class of inductees at the newly celebrated First Americans Museum. I have every confidence that the Hall of Fame honorees will inspire our youth and future generations of Native Americans. In addition, greater numbers of non-Natives will learn of Native contributions and their legacies will live on,” said James Parker Shield, CEO of the National Native American Hall of Fame.

2021 Event Cancellation (due to the COVID-19 virus)

Throughout 2020, the National Native American Hall of Fame (NNAHOF) closely followed the news surrounding the COVID-19 virus and its related public health risks.  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!
