Special Observances

DEOMI provides numerous products and templates for your use in organizing your observance/awareness month events. DEOMI lists only observances established by law, bill, or resolution of Congress. DEOMI does not create themes, except for Days of Remembrance. Nothing precludes an organization from creating their own theme or using previously published themes for your events, just choose one that works best for your event. In addition, organizations are not required to limit their special observances to just those reflected here. Organizations are reminded that special observances are conducted to recognize the continuous achievements of all Americans to American culture and to increase awareness, mutual respect, and understanding. They are designed to enhance cross-cultural and cross-gender awareness and promote harmony among all military members, their families, and the DOD civilian workforce. Completed products are provided for convenience, as well as modifiable templates for those who choose to add command or Service related details.

NATIONAL AMERICAN INDIAN HERITAGE MONTHPoster 2019 National American Indian Heritage Month


Theme: Sovereignty, Trust and Resilience


The observation of National American Indian Heritage Month has its roots in Public Law 99-471. Over several years the observation was moved to different months but in 1990 Public Law 101-343 set the month long observance in November. Each year the President issues a Proclamation in recognition of the observance. National American Indian Heritage Month is observed from 1 - 30 November of each year. The observance month recognizes American Indians for their respect for natural resources and the Earth, having served with valor in our nation's conflicts and for their many distinct and important contributions to the United States. Please note that the title of this observance varies between the various documents listed and DEOMI uses that title set forth in the 1990 and subsequent Public Laws. The theme for this event changes each year.
