November is Native American Heritage Month

For the past 30 years, November has been celebrated in the US as Native American Indian Heritage Month. We have assembled a variety of digital resources from FCIT’s collections to support classroom activities related to Native American Indian heritage. The collections and artifacts below include:

  • High school level audiobooks and reading passages.
  • The Gran Quivira iBook is suitable for middle and high school students and includes information about the Puebloan People of the American Southwest.
  • Native American music can be used at all levels.
  • The maps can introduce an exploration of how tribes were removed westward as the colonies and then states, expanded.
  • The illustrations can be used for activities around historic events, cultural practices, and Native American artifacts.
  • Reading passages on Native Americans in Florida at the upper elementary reading level.
