It was in 1896 that the authorities passed a resolution to declare the week of November 23 to November 30 as American-Indian week. Henceforth, President Ronald Reagen proclaimed this week for the year and the years followed. Later in 1990, the then President H. W. Bush declared the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month. This annual tradition was observed since then every November to honor the contributions of the mentioned people.
