November is Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month, recognizing the significant and ongoing contributions of American Indians and Alaska Natives. This year’s theme is “Sovereignty, Trust and Resilience.” Beginning more than 100 years ago, national observances to recognize Native American heritage offer an opportunity to raise awareness, celebrate rich and diverse tribal cultures, and honor the past and present.
