Celebrate Native American Heritage Month
November is National Native American Heritage Month.
As of the 2010 Census, there are 5.2 million American Indians and Alaska Natives in the United States, making up 1.7% of our population. There are 565 federally-recognized tribes, the biggest of which are Cherokee, Navajo, and Choctaw.
Native Americans have a rich history full of many traditions. You can learn more about some of these traditions and view images and video clips at the official website, which links to resources such as the Library of Congress’s Willing to Serve: American Indians Stories from the Veterans History Project.
