Native American Heritage Month Virtual Display


November is Native American Heritage Month, also known as American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month. It is a time to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories of the native nations and their contributions to our culture.

Native Americans – the 6.8 million people from 574 Indian nations – have faced myriad critical issues throughout history but also in modern life.  Unemployment, poverty, inadequate health care and poor education are just a few of the issues facing native people today.

If you are interested in learning more about the American Indian culture and their ongoing struggles, PCC library has a vast array of resources available.  Beyond what is featured here, there are many websites, blogs, and online podcasts by native people.
