November is Native American Heritage Month. This month long celebration started in 1990 when George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.”
Currently, the WCC Library bulletin board exhibit area, and part of the newspaper exhibit area, showcases Native Americans and their contributions to our culture and history. The bulletin board area offers biographies of prominent Native Americans, as well as a few general information books. The newspaper area provides fiction books for adults and children by Native American authors. All are availble for you to check out and read.
