The first American Indian Day was celebrated in May 1916 in New York. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed a joint congressional resolution designating November 1990 as “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Similar proclamations have been issued every year since 1994.

In celebration the State Data Center has updated it's Native Americans in Iowa data profile. The 2023 profile, updated using data from the 2021 American Community Survey data, can be found here.
