Native American Heritage Month

Posted about 9 months ago by Jennifer Deuell

Native American Heritage Month is celebrated each year in November. It is a time to celebrate the Native American, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and affiliated Island communities for their diverse cultures, traditions, stories, and histories. It is also an opportunity to honor how their communities enrich our daily lives and our Nation. Join us in marking this special occasion by checking out a book by an Indigenous author.
