Native American Heritage Month 2022 at Nonotuck

Nonotuck Resource Associates recently wrapped up another enlightening celebration of Native American Heritage Month (NAHM) this November. We started the month by acknowledging the lands our offices sit on. This was made possible by the website through Native Land Digital.

Nayana LaFond

We were honored to host artist and activist Nayana Lafond, who spoke of her recent project highlighting the untold stories of  missing and murdered Indigenous people, their family members and community activists.

Listen and Learn

We concluded our month with a Listen and Learn event that allowed the Nonotuck community to reflect upon a great week of presentations, as well as taking in some additional videos.

The Native American Heritage Month events were programmed by Nonotuck’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee. If you are interested in joining the committee please email committee co-chairs Jannelle Robinson (robinson@nonotuck.com) and Nichole Bourke (bourke@nonotuck.com). 

“(Through shared living) people with a disability experience a real transformation and discover confidence in themselves; they discover their capacity to make choices, and also find a certain liberty and above all their dignity as human beings.”

Caregiving with Love:
Guide for Shared Living Providers

Learn how Nonotuck developed a love-based ideology of care. We started our shared living program as an alternative to group homes for people with disabilities. Instead, Shared Living creates genuine life transformation for people with disabilities, as well as families and communities. The true power of caregiving is found through hospitality, authenticity, and love.
