Every November, a number of United States institutions like the Library of Congress, the National Archives, the Smithsonian, the National Park Service, and more come together to celebrate and pay tribute to the history of Native American people. This is commemorated as Native American Heritage Month.
The National Native American Heritage Month website includes online exhibitions of Native American Constitutions and Legal Materials, photographs from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and many other archival and virtual collections from museums around the country. It also has a section for teachers, which can be used as teaching aids to help tell the stories of Native American tribal communities.
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, the Bellevue University Library is hosting a Lunch and Learn presentation titled “Standing Bear: Walking Towards Justice.” This Lunch and Learn, hosted by Rick Galusha, will occur today in the Library from 12:30 to 1:30 PM. The presentation will also be available via Zoom. It will also be recorded and made available to the entire Bellevue University community. In this presentation, Rick Galusha will discuss the figure Standing Bear and his contributions to history.
