Read more information regarding Native American Heritage Month, or if you are on campus, stop by to check out our displays.

In honor of BMCC's 50th Anniversary, come see "the way we were."  The Library has a display of popular culture items--magazines, toys, books, etc.--from 1962.


On a two-year loan to the Library is a metal sculpture by former BMCC Art instructor, Bruce Guiwits (1939-2009).  The sculpture is called Black Tie and is installed in the seating area in the back of the library, nicely situated in front of floor-to-ceiling windows where it can be seen from outside the Library, too.

Check out the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla Reservation (CTUIR) website for monthly news and activities.

November is recognized as NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH and Indian Country Today Media Network will be celebrating every day of the month.

According to the 2010 Census, there are over 5.2 million American Indian and Alaska Native people and there are 566 federally recognized tribal nations that exist as sovereign nations within 33 states of the United States. In November, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the modern and the traditional cultures, peoples and societies of Native Americans. It’s also an occasion to highlight the important contributions of Native peoples and explore the shared histories between tribal nations.
