The month of November is National Native American Heritage month. In 1990, President George H. W. Bush declared that the month of November would be dedicated to the heritage of the Native Americans. 


Landrum Library is celebrating and remembering Native American heritage all month long with activities dedicated to Native Americans.

Anna Pilston, head librarian for Landrum Library said, “the month of dedicated activities is a chance to celebrate and explore a culture that is right here and is a part of our local environment and culture, and we want everyone to have the chance to explore a culture that is a part of our community.”


Earlier this month, library visitors had a chance to complete genealogy tests. These tests allowed people to see if they possibly had Native American in their family heritage. 


There was also a chance to learn about wolves, and the importance of wolves in Native American history. People were able to hear facts about wolves and were allowed to pet a wolf as well. This event was very well received as the turnout was very large. 


The library has one more event dedicated to learning more about Native American heritage. There is a faux calligraphy class that teenagers are invited to attend on Tuesday, November 19th. Your teen will learn how to write calligraphy and understand the meaning behind it. 


For more information on library activities you can call the Landrum Library or find their monthly newsletter on the library website.
