National American Indian & Alaska Native Heritage Month is celebrated annually in November. Its purpose is to recognize the intertribal cultures and to educate the public about the heritage, history, art, and traditions of the American Indian and Alaska Native people. To observe the 2006 National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month, we have compiled a bibliography consisting of books, journal articles, and websites highlighting culture, self-determination, and health issues.
