Native-American Heritage Month Native-American Heritage Month

Minimize

November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly refered to, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month.The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.

Native American Heritage Month began in 1986 as "American Indian Week." President Reagan dedicated the week to the celebration of Native American Heritage. In 1995, however, the entire month of November was designated as Native American Heritage Month. The month-long celebration highlights the history, culture, and people of Indigenous American heritage.
