National American Indian Heritage Month
Each year, the President issues a proclamation in recognition of the National American Indian Heritage Month, which is observed from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30. The observance month recognizes American Indians for their respect for natural resources and the Earth. American Indians are also recognized for having served with valor in our Nation's conflicts and for their many distinct and important contributions to the United States. The theme for this year’s observance is Honoring Our Nations: Building Strength Through Understanding. (Courtesy graphic)
