All this month, the National Archives joined with the Library of Congress, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Gallery of Art, the National Park Service, the Smithsonian Institution and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to pay tribute to the traditions of Native Americans during Native American Heritage Month. The National Archives has hundreds of digitized records relating to Native Americans in our online catalog. In honor of Native American Heritage Month, we hope you’ll help us tag these interesting records!
Our catalog includes digitized records from Record Group 75, Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The BIA, in conjunction with tribal governments, Native American organizations, other federal agencies, state and local governments, and other interested groups, was responsible for the development and implementation of economic, social, educational, and other programs for the benefit and advancement of Indian and Alaska native peoples. Also included in our online holdings, are records from Record Group 435, Records of the Indian Arts and Crafts Board (IACB). The IACB serves as a clearinghouse for development of Native American (American Indian and Alaska Native) arts and crafts.
