In 1990, President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November as "National American Indian Heritage Month." Since that time, Native Americans have used this commemorative month as a platform to share our culture, traditions, music, crafts, food, dance and ways of life. This year, we ask that you express our impressive history of being strong warriors…survivors…leaders…hunters and gatherers with your community, friends and neighbors. We may all look differently but we share the same pride, love, and respect for our brothers and sisters. Let’s build bridges of understanding and friendship across the nation.
We are Northern Cherokee!
