American Indian Heritage Month

Celebrating American Indian Heritage Month

American Indian Heritage Month began as a one-day celebration in Rochester, N.Y.  In 1915, the Congress of the American Indian Association issued a proclamation declaring the second Saturday in May as American Indian Day. American Indian Day was observed in several states on varying dates, and it was not until 1990 that November was approved as national American Indian Heritage Month by President George H.W. Bush.
