Following the meeting and luncheon, Denny Wayne Robinson, White County executive, signed a proclamation for National American Indian Heritage Month. Native American Awareness Week began in 1976.  In August 1990, recognition was expanded by Congress and approved by President George Bush designating the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month.
