Native American Issues

From the environment to e-trade, Native Americans are taking great strides in the United States. In November, we celebrate the culture and contributions of the first Americans.

"As keepers of a rich and ancient cultural heritage, Native Americans share with all of us the beauty of their art, the power of their songs and the grace of their people," President Clinton said in a National American Indian Heritage Month proclamation on November 9, 2000. "As individuals, they have distinguished themselves in virtually every field, from the arts to the sciences, from the world of sports to the world of commerce."

Explore the following sites for the latest news, issues, triumphs and tribulations of American Indians:
