Commemorating the first Americans in November

What started at the turn of the century as an effort to gain a day of recognition for the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S., has resulted in a whole month being designated for that purpose. 

In commemoration of Native American Heritage Month, the Center for Minority Health Services will be hosting a webinar entitled “Native Americans 101”.
Jacqueline (Jackie) Ann Dionne is the Minnesota Department of Health’s first Director of American Indian Health/Tribal Liaison and is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Tribe.
