Native American Day

September 23 is Native American Day. In recognition of the important contributions Native Americans have made to our country, the US Government Bookstore is featuring the Smithsonian Institution multi-volume hardcover reference Handbook of North American Indians series.

The Handbook of North American Indians print series is a fascinating fourteen-volume collection. It is the ultimate resource for Native American history across various regions of North America.
