Native American Heritage Month 2022


Native American Heritage Month 2022

Native American Heritage month was established in 1996, by President Bill Clinton, who proclaimed November as the official month for the celebration. He urged all Americans alike to observe the month with commemoration, education, and awareness, so as to help each other fully understand the Native American Culture. Native American Month honors and recognizes the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S.
