American Indian Heritage Month

  • In 1976, Congress authorized a week in October as Native American Awareness Week in celebration of American Indians. In 1990, President George Bush designated November as “National American Indian Heritage Month,” to celebrate the history, arts, and traditions of the American Indian and Alaska Native peoples.
    In 2014, the State of Washington designed the fourth Friday in November as Native American Heritage Day, a state and school legal holiday, as under state law, states offices and schools are already closed the day after Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday of the month).
