Honoring the vital impact of Native American culture, contributions and character in America.

Native Americans are an integral part of American history, culture and character. In the face of overwhelming adversity, Native American culture remains a fundamental component of the American experience. Contributions and accomplishments of Native Americans permeate and impact American art, music, literature, agriculture, spirituality and medicine.

Two decades ago, Native American culture was nationally recognized with the designation of November as National American Indian Heritage Month. The commemoration continues to pay tribute to Native Americans’ historical and contemporary achievements and their revolutionary role in the development of American culture and society, while recognizing the evolution of the Native American experience and emphasizing the significance of preserving Native traditions and heritage.
