November 2010 Exhibit – Native American Heritage Month

This month the WCC Library is celebrating Native American Heritage Month with book exhibits placed in the newspaper area and the bulletin board area.  In 1990 President George H.W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 as “National American Indian Heritage Month.”  Similar proclamations have been issued each year since 1994.

The library’s book exhibits feature fiction titles, children’s books by Native American authors, as well as biographies about American Indians, including famous historical figures such as Sitting Bull and Pocahontas.

To learn more about Native American history, visit the Library of Congress’s page for online exhibits and collections as well as image collections.
