In celebration of American Indian Heritage Month

The first American Indian Day in a state was declared on the second Saturday in May 1916 by the governor of N.Y.  Presently, several states have designated Columbus Day as Native American Day, but it continues to be a day we observe without any recognition as a national legal holiday. In 1990 President George Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.”   For more information regarding the history and culture of the American Indian visit this website: http://www.martinsfoods.com/shareddev/sharedcontent/SP/AIHM08/index.cfm
