Resources for Native American Heritage Month
The United States would not be the nation it is today without the contributions of indigenous Americans. From our government and laws to environmental practices and different food dishes we enjoy, their influence is everywhere. This is why every November we honor all tribes during Native American Heritage Month.
Throughout this month, Media Cause celebrates the history, culture, and traditions of all indigenous people, and we want to encourage you to do the same.
