    Throughout November, we celebrate American Indian Heritage Month as an opportunity to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions, histories and acknowledge the important contributions of America's first peoples.

    There are 29 federally recognized Native American tribes in Washington state. On November 1, 2017, Governor Jay Inslee, released his Proclamation for Native American Heritage Month. Read Governor Inslee's proclamation on the Governor's Office of Indian Affairs website.

    Seattle Public Schools recognizes and honors the important contributions to our communities made by our local, state and country's indigenous peoples. Approximately 2,000 people in the Seattle Public Schools community identify as Native American/Alaskan Native – from students and teachers to principals and associate principals.
