Celebrate Native American Heritage Day

Native American Heritage Day dates back to 2008 when President George W. Bush signed the day of observance into law. The Native American Heritage Day Bill encourages Americans of all backgrounds to observe the Friday after Thanksgiving as Native American Heritage Day, through appropriate ceremonies and activities. It also encourages public elementary and secondary schools to enhance student understanding of Native Americans by providing classroom instructions focusing on their history, achievements, and contributions.

I am proud of my Cherokee Indian heritage and know my ancestors paid a heavy price for my freedoms today.
