Native American Heritage Month

Each November we celebrate the rich ancestry, cultures, traditions, and history of Native Americans and acknowledge their unique challenges and important contributions to history.

The first American Indian Day was celebrated in May 1916 in New York. The event culminated an effort by Red Fox James, a member of the Blackfeet Nation who rode across the nation on horseback seeking approval from 24 state governments to have a day to honor American Indians. In 1990, President George H. W. Bush declared the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month, commonly referred to as Native American Heritage Month

Our librarians have created a list of fiction and non-fiction titles for all ages:
