Nov 13, 2018
Although the first "American Indian Day" was celebrated in May 1916 in New York, a month-long recognition of Native Americans did not happen until 1990. That year, President George H.W. Bush signed a joint congressional resolution designating November as National American Indian Heritage Month. Since then, the title has expanded to celebrate the heritage, history, art,and traditions of American Indians and Alaska Natives. The Michigan History Center is honoring Michigan Native Americans.
