Indigenous People’s Heritage Month

In recognition of Indigenous People’s Heritage Month in November, Watzek is displaying a selection of titles by and about Indigenous peoples. A selection of titles may be found near the library service desk and are available to check out.  

November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly referred 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. - National Congress of American Indians
