November: Native American Heritage Month

November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly referred to, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month.



The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.

September: Hispanic Heritage Month 

Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual event celebrating the richness of Latino culture and honoring our heritage. Each year from September 15 through October 15, Latino heritage is recognized, along with the achievements of Latinos in history.


It’s a wonderful time to pass on the beauty of Latino culture to children of Latino descent or expose any child to learning about a diverse group of people and new cultures.
