ICTMN Staff
11/1/12

Today, November 1, is the first day of Native American Heritage Month, and ICTMN is highlighting events celebrating the month every day in November.  Today, Native American Indian tribal nations and the general public are hereby cordially invited to attend the Jatibonicu Taíno Tribal Nation's 2nd Annual Native American Indian Heritage month celebration. The event will take place at 1:00 PM and an opening ceremony will be held in front of Vineland City Hall at the corners of 7th and Wood streets in Vineland, New Jersey. This annual event was proclaimed in November 2011 by the Vineland City Mayor Robert Roman and the City Council of Vineland. The local event is being co-sponsored by the Jatibonicu Taíno Tribal Band of Southern New Jersey. It is officially open for attendance by all the local surrounding communities of Vineland, Bridgeton and Millville and all Native American Indian tribes and the general public who are interested in learning about Native American heritage.

Please bring your tribal flags, your drums, bring your rattles and bring your songs and let us all unite together as a people and rejoice in celebrating our heritage and our many tribal legacies and cultures as Native American Indian People with pride in honoring our indigenous ancestors.

If you are interested in attending this upcoming event please do not hesitate in contacting the Native American Indian Heritage Month Committee at our local tribal office in Vineland at (856) 690-1565 for any further information on this local event.

Each day in November we're also asking readers, What does Native American Heritage Month mean to you? Send us your poems, stories and photos for possible publication to editor@ictmn.com.
