Native American Heritage Month kicked off this week, and Google is helping to celebrate by raising awareness of history and culture through Google Assistant, Chrome, and Chrome OS. You will be able to get collections of historical facts, as well as stories, and also show native art in your browser or on your desktop.
For those with a Google Home or Nest smart device, you can say “Happy Native American Heritage Month” or “Give me a Native American Heritage Fact” throughout the month for facts and stories. These are live now if you want to try and learn something.
In the art department, Google commissioned five Native American artists to create themes for Chromebooks and the Chrome browser. You will find works by Crystal Worl, James P. Johnson, Michael Namingha, Noah Lee and Richard D. York. I’ve included a few of the pieces in this article, but you can find the entire collection at this Chrome Web Store link.
To add one of these to your browser, you’ll just head to this link above, tap the art, and then tap “Add to Chrome.” It couldn’t be easier.
