Native American Heritage Month

Since 1990, Congress has authorized an annual presidential proclamation that designates November as National American Indian Heritage Month, also know as (Native American Heritage Month), to encourage everyone to learn about the contributions and cultures of the indigenous peoples of the North American continent. Such recognition, however, dates back further with state and organizational recognition of indigenous peoples days and commemorations occurring at the turn of the 20th century.
