Let’s Celebrate Native American Heritage Month

Let’s Celebrate Native American Heritage Month

Let’s all find out how we can celebrate Native American Heritage Month this November.

Native American Heritage Month provides a platform for the indigenous people of the United States to showcase their culture, traditions, and so many other aspects that guide their ways of life.  This month fosters awareness of Native American cultures and asks that respect be offered to these communities.  In honor of Native American Heritage Month, let’s try out these celebration ideas.

1) Read a book about American Indian History

One way we can get involved this month is by learning more about Native American history.  Reading a book about American Indian history can help us understand and appreciate Native American culture so much more.  Remember, that there were hundreds of Native Americans living across our country.  So, let’s try to find a book that details the history of the peoples indigenous to where we live for a more personal experience.

2) Try Out a Native Recipe

Another great way for us to get involved this Native American Heritage Month is by learning how to make one of the many dishes popular in Native American culture.  For instance, we can try our hand at making traditional fry bread, or we can attempt some of these other delicious and authentic dishes.

3) Watch a Movie Starring American Indians

Finally, we can celebrate Native American Heritage Month by watching films that discuss real events.  A great suggestion is Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, which chronicles the displacement of native peoples as a result of westward expansion and “Manifest Destiny.”

Many thousands of years ago, late in the Ice Age, the Indians journeyed across the Bering land bridge, from Asia into Alaska. Their descendants explored along the west coast of North America. As early as 1000 BC, they had covered nearly the entire continent. It is not known when the first American Indians arrived. Some archaeologists (scientists who study the remains of past human lives) believe it might have been about 1200 BC.
