Indigenous People’s Heritage Month

In 1990, President George H. W. Bush declared the month of November National American Indian & Alaska Native Heritage Month, most commonly known as Native American Heritage Month. This month aims to provide a platform for native people to share their culture, traditions, music, crafts, dance, and ways and concepts of life. As we recognize the rich cultural heritage of Indigenous People, it is also important to acknowledge the history of killing, expropriation of lands, exploitation, enslavement, and broken treaties that have affected this population. Indigenous People’s Heritage Month commemorates the rich culture of Native and Indigenous people as well as our painful past.
