Native-American Heritage Month
The U.S. has recognized the need for Native-American celebrations for almost 100 years. In November 1990, President George H.W. Bush declared the first Native American Heritage Month to honor and recognize contributions of the indigenous people of what is now the U.S.
Events are sponsored by the U of I Native-American Student Center, Native-American Student Association, Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Office of Tribal Relations.
