November is Native American Heritage month. According to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, precedents were set in the early 20th century for the national commemoration by The Boy Scouts’ “American Indian Day” and Red Fox James, a Blackfoot Indian, who presented the White House with 24 state endorsements in 1915. In 1990, President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Read our featured books and visit nativeamericanheritagemonth.gov. for a wealth of information about paying tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans.
