Published: Monday, November 4, 2013 at 03:37 PM.

November is American Indian Heritage Month. Come to the Crestview Public Library and check out the books and DVDs we have on the American Indians’ rich culture.

Not sure what to check out? No problem; we will have a book display for your convenience.

Also, on Nov. 16, join us for the American Indian Living History Hunting Camp. The program begins at 1 p.m. Relive the past with Blue Heron (Wah-ka-chobee), a Seminole/Creek Indian. Farris Powell presents a historical impression of the Seminole warrior at the turn of the 19th century.

You will find yourself back in the 1830s, sampling the food and seeing the clothing, weapons, tools, games and musical instruments from that period.

The outdoor program is designed for school-aged children through adults. Bring blankets or chairs and dress for the weather.

Learn about more library happenings at the Crestview library website, call 682-4432 or visit 1445 Commerce Drive, behind the Crestview post office.

Jean Lewis is the Crestview Public Library's director.
