Guyana: Amerindian Heritage Month
September every year has been designated as Amerindian Heritage Month in recognition of the sacrifices and contributions of Guyana’s first inhabitants, the Amerindians. Similar observances are held in other countries to honour the contributions of their Native or Indigenous peoples. In the United States, for example, “Native American Heritage Day” is observed in late November, after Thanksgiving; and in some parts of the USA that have a large native population, the entire month of November is devoted to commemorating the Native American experience in the United States.
