Bullock Celebrates American Indian Heritage Day

By Beacon Staff

Gov. Steve Bullock is encouraging Montanans across the state to celebrate American Indian Heritage Day today, Sept. 27.

“The culture, heritage and history of the tribal nations began the story of Montana,” Bullock said. “While, today we take special note of the heritage of the First Montanans, together we remember their history and celebrate their continued contributions to the state.”

American Indian Heritage Day is recognized as a day of celebration of the rich cultural heritage, history and contributions of American Indians. The 2009 Montana Legislature passed a law recognizing the last Friday of every September as American Indian Heritage Day.
