The Library of Congress, along with a half dozen other agencies, has created a site to recognize Native American Heritage month. There you can find out about the origins of Native American Heritage Month (first called American Indian Day), the month’s events (including lectures and performances), and extensive resources on Native American history.
The site also features links to images (like the Indians of North America and the French and Indian War), audio/video files (including author interviews from past book festivals, and video of the Dineh Tah Navajo Dancers), and collections. See all of this and more at the Library of Congress’s Native American Heritage Month site.
