Officially designated in 1990, National Native American Heritage Month is observed each November to recognize the history and significant contributions of indigenous Americans.

For information specific to Wisconsin's twelve tribal nations (out of 574 tribal nations in the U.S.), take a look at our Indigenous People guide.

For reading inspiration, here's just a small selection of titles by indigenous authors that we have in our library's collection:
