Native American Heritage Month: November is Native American Heritage month. In 1915, Red Fox James, a Native American from the Blackfeet tribe, launched an initiative seeking a day to honor Native Americans in the United States.  Red Fox rode on horseback from Montana to Washington D.C. gathering support along the way from 24 state Governors.  Red Fox's historic ride paved the way for recognition of Native Americans and ultimately resulted in official recognition by many states, and then by the federal government in 1990 when President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November "Native American Heritage Month."
