National Native American Heritage Month
National Native American Heritage Month is recognized each November. Its purpose is to celebrate the diverse and rich cultures, traditions, history, and societal contributions of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN).
Although Indigenous peoples make up a significant portion of the United States population, much of their histories and cultures have been put aside.
