Native American Heritage Month

For the month of November, the library will be celebrating Native American Heritage month!  Heritage month was established in 1994 by former President George H. W. Bush as a way to recognize the contributions of American Indians.  The month is a time to celebrate traditions and historiography and acknowledge the impact of Native peoples.  Heritage Month is an excellent opportunity to inform and educated the public about modern day tribes and to raise awareness of the unique challenges Native peoples still encounter daily.

 

During this month, the library will maintain a display portraying some of the major events and contributions of various tribes and individuals of Native American descent.  Concurrently, The Office of Multicultural Student Services is hosting several events.  For more information, stop by the library of the OMSS today!

 

Ahóá!

Cheers!  Good health!
