Why is Native American Heritage Month important?
It's Native American Heritage Month. In honor of Election Day, did you know that the U.S. had an American Indian Vice President? Charles Curtis, a member of the Kaw Tribe, served as VP under Herbert Hoover 1929-1933. Curtis’ home in Topeka, Kansas is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a state historic site and museum.
