National American Indian Heritage Month

November is National American Indian Heritage Month. It was first declared in 1990 by President George H. W. Bush as a way to recognize and celebrate the tribal cultures of the Native American and Alaska Native people. Since then, the current president releases a proclamation each year declaring National American Indian Heritage Month.

The purpose of National American Indian Heritage Month is to recognize the important role that Native Americans have played in our history, as well as to acknowledge the injustices that they have suffered. It is also an opportunity to look to the future, to examine the challenges that Native Americans still face, and how those challenges can be overcome.
