November is an opportunity to recognize and honor the contributions, achievements, sacrifices, and cultural and historical legacy of the American Indian and Alaska Native peoples, who were the original inhabitants, explorers, and settlers of the United States.


It is also an opportunity to educate ourselves and to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present.


Please take time this month to discuss the history of the Native American Indian and Alaskan Indian peoples with your kids and families. 


Let’s recognize their important role in the fabric of our nation and take time to learn about the countless contributions they’ve made.
