National Native American Heritage Month has only had formal designation since 1990 when President George H. W. Bush approved the first national resolution. Yet history behind this resolution goes back well into early 1900s when Dr. Arthur C. Parker, a Seneca Indian, and director of the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Rochester, New York began to advocate to Boy Scouts of America. He persuaded them to incorporate a day for “First Americans” to be honored.
