Honoring Native American Heritage Month

PORTLAND, Ore. — November 6, 2023 — Multnomah County Library invites the community to join in celebrating and honoring Native American Heritage Month. Visit a library location through November 30 to learn about events, book displays and activities.

This month honors the rich traditions and culture of Native Americans, Alaska Natives,  Kānaka Maoli (Native Hawaiians), and the many other Indigenous peoples of the Americas.

“It's important to note that we celebrate the diverse strengths of being Indigenous all year long, but during the months of October (Indigenous Peoples Day) and November (Native Heritage month) we draw up on these strengths to remind the rest of the community that we have always been here, and we are still here,” says Eva Red Bird, Multnomah County Library’s Indigenous community services coordinator.

“What an honor for the library to be part of our presence and resiliency,” says Red Bird. 

Visit the library and meet members of the library’s Indigenous team to find culturally relevant materials for you. Multnomah County Library offers programs and services for the Indigenous community all-year round. Stay up to date at multcolib.org
