First recognized as "Native American Indian Heritage Month" in 1990, by President George H.W. Bush, the month of November has been celebrated annually as "Native American Heritage Month" (or a variant thereof) since 1994. The observance is a prime opportunity to recognize the unique contributions of Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians to both the U.S. regions in which they reside and to American society-at-large.
