This November, this library is celebrating the cultural traditions of American Indians and Alaska Natives with a display honoring Native American Heritage Month. According to the National Congress of American Indians,
The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
November is also a time to be conscious of those within our community who are dealing with the problems of hunger and homelessness. National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (Nov. 12-20) is “an annual program where people come together across the country to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Participating groups spend the week holding a series of educational, service, fundraising, and advocacy events.”
