Native American Heritage Month – November

 

Although the first “American Indian Day” was declared by the State of New York in 1916, a month-long recognition of Native Americans was not achieved until 1990. In that year, President George H.W. Bush declared the first National Native American Heritage Month. The purpose of Native American Heritage Month is to showcase the rich culture of the native people of this land, and to honor those American Indians that have suffered injustice.

 

Each year, the Office of Multicultural Programs (MCP), the Multicultural Center (MCC), and the student organization, Native Peoples Awareness Coalition (NPAC) plan various programs and activities to highlight the American Indian culture.
