WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden on Monday proclaimed November 2022 as Native American Heritage Month. In the presidential proclamation below, the president said during the month, "we celebrate Indigenous peoples past and present and rededicate ourselves to honoring Tribal sovereignty, promoting Tribal self-determination, and upholding the United States' solemn trust and treaty responsibilities to Tribal Nations."

Preisdent Biden referenced his adminstration's commitment to Indian Country by the investment made in "the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that secured more than $13 billion exclusively for Native communities to deliver high-speed internet to Tribal lands, build safer roads and bridges, modernize sanitation systems, and provide clean drinking water -- all while putting people to work and through the Inflation Reduction Act, we are lowering the price of health care coverage and capping drug costs for Indigenous families."
