This month marks the start of Native American Heritage Month, a time for us to recognize the contributions the first Americans made in our country, as well as all the contributions Native Americans continue to make in our country today. Each November we honor the histories, cultures, traditions, and languages of Native American groups and individuals past and present. In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, check out this selection of poems, essays, books, audio, and more by and about Native American poets.
