Hardin County Judge-Executive Harry L. Berry presented the Captain Jacob Van Meter Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution with a local proclamation designating the month of November as “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Judge Executive Berry urged all citizens to observe the month of November with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities to honor the .4 percent of the county’s population designated American Indian. The history and culture of our great nation have been significantly influenced by American Indians and indigenous peoples. The contributions of American Indians have enhanced the freedom, prosperity, and greatness of America today, and their customs and traditions are respected and celebrated as part of a rich legacy throughout the United States. Native American Awareness Week began in 1976 and recognition was expanded by Congress and approved by President George Bush in August 1990, designating the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month.
