Celebrating Native American Heritage Month

Native American and Alaska Native Heritage Month has evolved from its beginnings as a week-long celebration in 1986, when President Reagan proclaimed the week of November 23-30 as “American Indian Week”.
Every President since 1995 has issued annual proclamations designating the month of November as the time to celebrate the cultures, accomplishments and contributions of Native Americans and Alaska Natives.
Through dance, family traditions, art and music, these stories show both the contemporary diversity and long history of Indigenous people across the land we now call the United States.
RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked The World is the electric story of how Native American influence shaped rock and roll, a missing chapter in music history. This story is available for online viewing until Wednesday, December 1st.
