November is the month for Native American Heritage. It's the time to celebrate the culture and the influence that Native Americans have on America. It's a great time to learn more about their culture, food and remember Thanksgiving as well. Wedding and Party Network has a few tips on how to celebrate this holiday.
How to Celebrate
There are many ways to celebrate this holiday. Whether you are catering it towards children or even adults, there are great ways to celebrate for both. If you're celebrating with children, read a book that displays the culture of Native Americans or read the story of Squanto. Once you've read them a book, discuss it with them. You can also let them watch a movie about it as well. If you would rather opt out of the movie, spend that time creating crafts. You can easily let them color pages, design a Navajo rug, create totem pole, a tomahawk or incorporate feathers into crafts. This can even be a great time for the children to tell the tale of the first Thanksgiving day between the Indians and Pilgrims.
If you're an adult wanting to celebrate, think about hosting a dinner party that revolves around the food that was served amongst the Native Americans. Think about creating a variety of cornbread, buffalo, fry bread, Indian pudding or Indian tacos.
This is a great holiday to celebrate. Get your friends, family and all the children together and have a great time.
