Native American Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Friday in September. In 2013, this falls on September 27, the same date as Ancestor Appreciation Day, which seems pretty appropriate to me. How many of us have a Native American somewhere in our bloodlines? I can point back to a great, great, great, great grandmother, a Cherokee, affectionately known as Little Granny, since she was so small.
Native American Day is a great time to learn about those tribes that lived where you do. Select your state from the map on this page to find more information about those who lived here before you!
“Praise the Lord, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord.”
