November is National Native American Heritage Month. The Library has two Native American Heritage Month displays.

              • In the Friends of the Library Gustavus Library Associates Reading Room, we have a collection of fiction and nonfiction books that look at the Native American experience.
              • On the first floor, near Government Documents office, we have a display focused on the Department of the Interior’s Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative study released in May. It’s goal is “to examine the scope of the system, with a focus on the location of schools, burial sites, and identification of children who attended the schools.” These schools included 21 sites in Minnesota. Along with information from the report, a selection of titles about the history of boarding schools and individual experiences are displayed.
