Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month, a time when we "pay tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans." The month was designated by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 and organizations from the National Parks Service, to the National Archives and the San Antonio Public Library celebrate each year.
Here at BiblioTech Public Library, we have several different resources and collections to highlight Native American history and culture.
