November is National Native American Heritage Month. It has been celebrated by Presidential Proclamation for 30+ years and should have been for many more years.
This year’s proclamation by President Biden lays out the many reasons this is so necessary. Not everyone is aware of the importance, and our schools generally fail in educating students about it. It’s time to recognize and celebrate the history, culture, needs, and educational contributions. We must honor our nation’s first people and on whose land we reside in the 50 states, Washington, DC, and the territories.
