Join us in celebrating American Indian Heritage Month this November. The Blume Library, in partnership with the St. Mary’s University Native American Student Association, is displaying Native North American artifacts this month. The display includes decorative, ceremonial, and other items from several Native American tribes. I encourage you to visit the library during November to see these fascinating artifacts!
The display also includes books of history, anthropology, and current events relating to the indigenous peoples of North and South America. When you visit the library, think about checking out one of these titles. You can also read online over 500 books on Native North Americans and many books on indigenous peoples of South American and Central America via the library's netLibrary database.
Finally, for a unique experience with Native American culture, check out the upcoming powwow sponsored by the StMU Native American Student Association. The powwow will be held this Saturday, November 17th from 10am-4pm in the Pecan Grove. Check out the St. Mary’s online calendar for more information.
