American Indian Heritage Month 2016 - Celebrating Native Culture, Honoring Native History

In celebration of American Indian Heritage Month and in honor of the 5.2 million Native Americans living in the U.S., we encourage you to join us in our reflection of the Native tribes and cultures that first inhabited our country. PWNA is proud to be celebrating Native culture, honoring Native history and exploring everyday realities of life on the reservations.

One of the greatest gifts you can give is to learn more about Native American people and their history, culture and contributions.

  • Visit this page daily for wisdom from the Elders, and the real story of the first Thanksgiving.
  • Participate in our calls to action, get your friends involved, and be entered for a chance to win books and DVDs on Native American history and culture. Links will be revealed on the day of the action.
  • Sign up today (right) for email reminders each business day of what’s ahead.
