National Native American Heritage Month provides us with a great opportunity to celebrate the amazing heritage and history of Native Americans. The original inhabitants of America have rich and varied cultures dating back thousands of years. Congress has authorized an annual presidential proclamation that designates November as National American Indian Heritage Month (or National Native American Heritage Month) since 1990. Let’s take time this month to appreciate and pay tribute to the many achievements and contributions of Native Americans everywhere. On our WU Reads Reading Guide you will find a selection of wonderful novels written by Native American authors; take some time to explore these great works.
