The month of November has been recognized as Native American Heritage Month since 1990, when President George H. W. Bush approved the first joint resolution establishing this designation. This time is set aside to acknowledge the achievements and contributions of the first Americans to life in this country and to celebrate their diverse cultures, traditions, thought, and histories. It is also a good time to engage with the struggles that Native Americans currently and historically have faced in society that make their achievements all the more significant and deserving of appreciation.
