American Indian Heritage Month

The month of November is celebrated nationally as American Indian Heritage Month.  The month of November was chosen because it is typically around the time of many American Indian fall harvest and world-renewal ceremonies, powwows, dances, and various feasts. This month recognizes hundreds of different tribes and approximately 250 languages, and celebrates the history, tradition, and values of American Indians. National American Indian Heritage Month serves as a reminder of the positive effect native peoples have had on the cultural development and growth of the U.S., as well as the struggles and challenges they have and continue to face.
