National Native American Heritage Month

November is National Native American Heritage Month. The history of Native American Heritage month dates back to 1900 when Dr. Arthur Caswell Parker, a Seneca and Founder of the National Congress of American Indians, first advocated for a day to recognize this country’s indigenous population. In November 1990 National American Indian Heritage Month was approved.

We encourage you to celebrate and learn about National Native American Heritage Month and take time to acknowledge the legacy of Native Americans and celebrate their many contributions.

It’s also important that we support members of our Native American/Indigenous community and appreciate the rich diversity they bring to our learning experiences. 

We’re planning events to help celebrate Native American Heritage Month and hope you will attend:
