Native American Heritage Month

Nov 1, 2022

November is Native American Heritage Month, sometimes called American Indian Heritage Month.

Part of the purpose of observing this heritage month is to increase the visibility of indigenous nations, tribes and individuals. There are three state recognized tribes in New Jersey: the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribe, the Powhatan Renape Tribe and the Ramapough Lenape Indian Nation.

We invite you to browse a curated bibliography of selected titles from the Wright Library collection, find material in Cherokee, Delaware, Navajo, Ojibwa and other languages in the Theological Commons and engage with the websites, recordings and other material included in the guide linked below.

Among the resources highlighted you'll find links to the Center for Native American and Indigenous Research, the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries & Museums, and more.
