The month of November is dedicated “to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contribution of Native people,” said Mrs. Thames-Real, Sahuaro’s librarian, in an email she sent out to teachers and parents.

Native American Heritage Month is for educating students about tribal nations, to show and talk about the challenges Native people have faced throughout the years, and how tribal citizens worked to conquer their daily challenges.

Mrs. Thames-Real will be setting up the library with pieces of art, paintings, literature and cultural artifacts on November 5.  On November 21 starting at 7:30 a.m. Mrs. Thames-Real will be sampling traditional Native foods, such as corn bread and mutton stew. Mutton stew is mainly sheep and it is important to the Navajo tribe as it is a meal that they eat often.

When asked why Mrs. Thames-Real was serving food, she said “food is a big part of the Native tribe,” and it is a good way to show what Native Americans ate.

Stop by the library to look at the cultural artifacts, learn a thing or two, and have a yummy bite to eat!
