Native American Heritage Month is a celebration of the history, culture and traditions of Native Americans. The celebration originally began in 1916 in New York State when it declared the first “American Indian Day.” On August 3, 1990 President George Bush declared the first National American Indian Heritage Month.
The purpose of Native American Heritage Month is to honor and recognize the original peoples of this land. At Grand Valley, we strive to provide an educational platform that addresses and celebrates the history of Native Americans through cultural events, speakers, art and music.
