November is Native American Heritage Month. Milne Library has recommended reading for you!

“[This] month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.” – National Congress of American Indians

We have a recommended reading list below, and a Native American Heritage display of books and media on the Main Floor of Milne Library throughout the month of November. Come read and celebrate with us!
