Since Time Immemorial: Native American Heritage Month

Wherever you are in the Americas, you are on land that has been inhabited by Indigenous people since time immemorial. In November, we honor the rich histories, diverse cultures and essential contributions of Native American, First Nations, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiian and Indigenous peoples. Here is a very small selection of books and resources representing some of the lived experiences of the many and diverse Indigenous people who live in what we now call North America, with a focus on the Pacific Northwest.
