In a historical moment, November was recently declared as National American Heritage Month. During this month, Americans are encouraged to “learn about the rich history and culture of the Native American people” and honor the contributions of these indigenous peoples, according to a proclamation by President Donald Trump. This decision is extremely important both to preserve Native American culture and to celebrate the history of a minority that is too often overlooked in American society.
