On August 3, 1990, President of the United States George H.W. Bush declared the month of November as National Native American Heritage Month. However, the first “American Indian Day” was celebrated in New York City in 1916. This is our time to celebrate the traditions, languages, and stories of Native American culture. It is essential to acknowledge the contributions that indigenous people contribute to this nation. This heritage month will raise awareness about the unique challenges Indigenous people have faced historically and in the present.

Albion College’s Native American land acknowledgment:
The College and community of Albion reside on Anishinaabe Waki, the traditional and contemporary land of the Anishinaabe People — the Three Fires Confederacy of Odawa, Ojibwe and Potawatomi. Parts of what is now Michigan also include ancestral homelands of the Sauk, Meskwaki, Kickapoo, Menominee, Miami and Peoria Peoples.
