Collection Highlights – National American Indian Heritage Month Part II

Posted Nov 17, 2017

Our latest Collection Highlights are on display in the glass case in the library lobby. We are featuring highlights from our collection in honor of National American Indian Heritage Month (also known as American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month) in November.

“The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.”
