Teach students an accurate and more complete history of Native and Indigenous peoples in celebration of Native American Heritage Month—and all year long! Including information from experts at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, these LFJ resources can help.

Most people do not realize that there are Native Indigenous tribes/bands/nations that do not have federal or state recognition. If you are interested in knowing more, please go to the Abenaki Trails Project Facebook page. There are several posts from the last few days that include a list of the state and federally recognized tribes/bands/nations, there is a resource list if you're interested in teaching about the Abenaki, and more information that I can list here.
