November is Native American Heritage Month

In celebration, the National Archives has teamed up with other federal agencies and cultural institutions to provide digital content, including resources for teachers.

Along with the Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution, and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, we pay tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans on The site includes teaching resources, exhibits and collections, images, audio and video, and a list of upcoming events.

Teachers specifically can access our special DocsTeach page with activities and primary source documents for teaching about Native Americans in history.

The National Archives also highlights:

Our partner organizations share great resources too, like the National Museum of the American Indian YouTube channel and the National Park Service’s travel itineraries that explore our country’s past through visiting places listed in the National Register of Historic Places that reflect major aspects of American history and the Native American experience.
