PBS Explores the Lives of the First Americans During American Indian Heritage Month
PBS salutes American Indian Heritage, traditionally celebrated during the month of November, with both new programs and repeats of some of the popular programs that explore the lives and culture of the first Americans. Native-American culture--too often invisible both on television and in American society at large--is at a crossroads, and PBS' special programming provides a provocative and surprising look at how communities are changing, adapting and enduring.
