AbstractIndigenous Peoples' Day, held each year on the second Monday of October, celebrates the history, culture and invaluable contributions American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians have made in the U.S., including in workplaces. However, unemployment among indigenous people is climbing. Federal data shows that American Indian and Alaska natives had an unemployment rate of 8.3 percent in August 2023— a rise from 6.7 percent the month before and the highest rate of unemployment among all racial groups. Reports have also showed that Native American employees, in particular, face workplace stereotypes and discrimination. About a third of Native American workers said they've experienced discrimination in the workplace when seeking jobs, promotions or equal pay, according to a 2017 poll by NPR. Creating an Inclusive Workplace for Native Americans Best practices for supporting and recruiting Native American employees include collaborating with tribal employment rights organizations, requesting a subject matter expert to conduct sensitivity training and networking with tribal colleges and universities.
