American Indian History

We are nearing the end of Native American Heritage Month.

Three ideas.

  1. Celebrate by visiting our subscription database American Indian History and searching through the fascinating essays. This is all copyrighted material, with real writers and editors. You will need your Takoma Park library card number to enter.
  2. Visit the National Museum of the American Indian downtown on the mall. They have good food and art.
  3. Fixing your own good food? Be sure to include some of native origin such as the three sisters: corn, beans, and squash. Also: cranberries, turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, maple syrup, chocolate, vanilla. Etc. Planning a pie? Pumpkin, pecan or blueberry would be suitable for celebrating our native heritage. Persimmon pudding as well. And put out some sunflower seeds for the birds.
