BISMARCK — Applications are open for the public to submit additional nominees for North Dakota's Native American Hall of Honor.

Each year, the state selects up to eight Native Americans "who have gone above and beyond in representing their tribe and culture" to be inducted into the Hall of Honor, according to the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission. The Hall of Honor is displayed in the North Dakota Heritage Center, which highlights the inductees with a visual display of personal belongings and a video about their achievements.

"This program brings great honor to Native historical and contemporary leaders for their significant contributions. These individuals are the inspiration for future generations," North Dakota Indian Affairs Commissioner Nathan Davis said in a statement.

In 2021, three Native Americans were selected for the Hall of Honor: Sitting Bull of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe; Lydia Sage Chase of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation; and Dave Dauphinais of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa.

The public can submit nominations for the state's Native American Hall of Honor at www.indianaffairs.nd.gov/events-0/hall-honor.com. Nominees can be living or deceased, and a ceremony for the 2022 inductees will be held at the North Dakota Heritage Center on Sept. 8.
