This season, four athletic programs will don turquoise uniforms to honor Native American Heritage month.

Florida State, Nevada and New Mexico will join Oregon State is wearing the uniforms for a game this November. The Beavers have done this for a couple seasons now, in large part due to former big man and Native American Joe Burton:

The schedule is as follows:

Nov. 17: Florida State
Nov. 22: Nevada
Nov. 26: Oregon State
Nov. 29: Nevada (Women’s)
Nov. 30: New Mexico

The event is sponsored by Nike’s N7 initiative whose goal is to get more Native American and Aboriginal youths into sports. That community suffers from a disproportionate number of kids with diabetes and weight problems due to inactivity.

This is pretty nice from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, who has made a habit out of getting themselves on the highlight reel.

Here’s another angle of the dunk:
