President Joe Biden has issued a proclamation naming November 2021 as National Native American Heritage Month, a time to "celebrate the countless contributions of Native peoples past and present, honor the influence they have had on the advancement of our Nation, and recommit ourselves to upholding trust and treaty responsibilities, strengthening tribal sovereignty, and advancing Tribal self-determination." He also touted the American Rescue Plan as the most significant funding legislation in U.S.history, and named Friday, November 26, 2021--popularly known as the consumer-driven Black Friday--as Native American Heritage Day.

NATIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH, 2021

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

The United States of America was founded on an idea: that all of us are created equal and deserve equal treatment, equal dignity, and equal opportunity throughout our lives. Throughout our history -- though we have always strived to live up to that idea and have never walked away from it -- the fact remains that we have fallen short many times. Far too often in our founding era and in the centuries since, the promise of our Nation has been denied to Native Americans who have lived on this land since time immemorial.
