November Is Native American Heritage Month... Let's Celebrate

Graphic reads, "Native American Heritage Month"


Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with us all through November.

Native American Heritage month started in 1915 when an art director, who was also a Seneca Indian, persuaded the Boy Scouts of America to set aside a day for the “first Americans.”

In 1916, the governor of New York declared the second Saturday in May as “American Indian Day.”

In 1990, President George H.W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.”
