Learn more about American Indian Heritage with these videos & eBooks
November is National American Indian Heritage Month, and to help the Jefferson community celebrate, the University Libraries has organized a list of relevant resources. The materials below include fiction and nonfiction stories that share the rich and important history and voices of Native Americans.
As the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) website states, “the month (of November) is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.” We hope these resources can help in that goal.
