"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. - Blackfoot"
On October 30,2009 President Barack H.Ohama Proclaimed November NATIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH. You can view the entire Proclaimation here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/presidential-proclamation-national-native-american-heritage-month
To begin to describe the contributions that native American have done for this country alone would take forever to count and record- from Sacagawea, the Shoshone who aided Lewis and Clark in early America to John Bennett- Herrington Lieutenant Commander, USN: 1st American Indian Astronaut
There have been many little known celebrations of Native American History going on for quite a while..but I will blog about the ones I have found in the coming weeks.
