Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month

November is Native American Heritage Month- a time to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. This month is also a great oppurtunity to "educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges" (National Congress of American Indians). That being said, I've gathered a mix of titles for children, teens, and adults that explore these ideas and are perfect reads for not just this month, but year round.
