Celebrating & Teaching Native American Heritage

11.24.23 This month, Albuquerque libraries are celebrating Native American Heritage Month by displaying books from Native authors and films about Native American culture. But at the San Pedro Library, one staffer took it a step further by hosting Navajo crafting classes. Antonia Gonzales and our crew went for a demonstration earlier this month — learning to make a decorative vase in the style of traditional Navajo moccasin — all while giving a deeper understanding of native culture and tradition.
