Each child attending the Native American Heritage Month kickoff event at the base library Nov. 1 created their own personal dream catchers with the help of parents, volunteers and library personnel.

The 412th Test Wing and NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., partnered to sponsor this year’s tribute to American Indian and Alaska Native people whose contributions, sacrifices and historical legacy, helped shape the United States. 

“Standing Together” is the theme for Native American Heritage Month 2017.
