Celebrate Native American Heritage Month

Display in Chesnutt.
 November is National Native American Heritage Month, a celebration of Native American history, cultures, and contributions.

This commemorative month celebrates the accomplishments of American Indians and recognizes American Indians as the original inhabitants of the United States. The tradition began in 1986 as a celebratory, evolved in 1990 to the entire month of November, and it has become standard practice for the President to designate the month of November as National Native American Heritage Month yearly by setting forth a proclamation. The 2012 Presidential Proclamation of National Native American Heritage Month can be found on the White House website.
