“Famous Dave” Anderson, a member of the Lac Courte Oreilles Lake Superior Band of Ojibwe, has been named to the 2021 class of inductees of the National Native American Hall of Fame, an honor given to people who have made significant contributions across a range of categories that include government, leadership and advocacy, literary arts, business, language, culture and health.
The National Native American Hall of Fame was founded in 2016 and held its first induction ceremony in 2018 at the site of the former Phoenix Indian boarding school in Phoenix, Arizona. The second such ceremony was held in 2019 at the Hard Rock Café/Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. (Due to COVID-19 there was no ceremony in 2020.) This year’s ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 6 at the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City, which will be opening September 2021 and will be home to the National Native American Hall of Fame.
