DID YOU KNOW THAT NOVEMBER IS AMERICAN INDIAN HERITAGE MONTH?
As the Governor's Commission on Indian Affairs' website says:
"American Indian Heritage Month in Maryland is recognized in conjunction with the national celebration of National Native American Heritage Month. In November 1990 a joint resolution was approved by the President of the United States designating November as National Native American Heritage Month. Proclamations are made each year by the President declaring the heritage month celebration. The first American Indian Day recognized by a state was declared on the second Saturday in May 1916 by the Governor of New York."
