The 18th Annual American Indian Heritage Celebration in North Carolina
The DAR calendar has designated November 29th as Native American Heritage Day but it is actually the entire month of November. It started in 1915 as only one day, then
in 1990, George H.W. Bush proclaimed November as National American Indian Heritage Month. It has been celebrated every year since 1994.
The 18th Annual American Indian Heritage Celebration in North Carolina will be on Saturday, November 23rd, 11am to 4pm at the North Carolina Museum of History, 5 East Edenton Street in Raleigh. Admission is FREE.
Watch traditional and contemporary artists, dancers, and performers. Participate in hands-on workshops and craft activities. Listen to historians and scholars discuss their latest findings and learn more about North Carolina's American Indian population - the largest of any state east of the Mississippi River.
