In 1990 President George H. W. Bush declared November as “National American Indian Heritage Month.” He urged all Americans alike to observe the month with celebration, education, and awareness, so as to help each other to fully understand the Native American Heritage. One of the main purposes of Native American Heritage Month is to honor and recognize the people of the past that originated on American soil.
You can promote Native American Heritage Month by educating students on the many different tribes that are still in exsistence today by discussing their origins and beliefs. Have promotional themed parties to represent your own Native American heritage. If you aren’t Native American, celebrate by learning and discussing with others, important Native American people that helped shape their culture’s history.
Every year, many organizations, including The Library of Congress, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and a few others team up to bring this event and the festivities that come along with it to the surface. There are many rituals and artworks being displayed for the public’s entertainment as well as education.
To help educate the public of the Native American traditions and culture, hand out promotional gift bags with custom brochures and a personalized thank you gift inside for people to take their new learnings home with them.
