Thanksgiving Holiday – no classes
Native American Heritage Month
In response to an effort by many to gain a day of recognition for the great influence American Indians have had upon the U.S., Congress designated a week of October to celebrate Native American Awareness Week in 1976. Yearly legislation was enacted to continue the tradition until August of 1990, when President Bush approved the designation of November as National American Indian Heritage Month. Each year a similar proclamation is issued. President Clinton noted in 1996, “Throughout our history, American Indian and Alaska Native peoples have been an integral part of the American character. Against all odds, America’s first peoples have endured, and they remain a vital cultural, political, social, and moral presence.” November is an appropriate month for the celebration because it is traditionally a time when many American Indians hold fall harvest and world-renewal ceremonies, powwows, dances, and various feasts. The holiday recognizes hundreds of different tribes and approximately 250 languages, and celebrates the history, tradition, and values of American Indians. National American Indian Heritage Month serves as a reminder of the positive effect native peoples have had on the cultural development and growth of the U.S., as well as the struggles and challenges they have faced.

Brian Regan is one of the most respected comedians in the country, earning praise from the press, the public, and fellow comedians. On September 26, 2015, he made history with the Comedy Central broadcast of Brian Regan: Live from Radio City Music Hall – the first ever live broadcast of a stand-up special in Comedy Central’s history. His performance was critically acclaimed, with Vanity Fair calling Regan “the funniest stand-up alive.” The special is now available on CD, DVD, or as an audio or video download.
Currently a regular on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Regan made 28 appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman, the most of any comic in the show’s 22 years on CBS. Regan made a scene-stealing cameo in Christ Rock’s film Top Five, and he was seen in Seinfeid’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. But it is stand-up comedy that is Brian’s focus, as he visits close to 100 cities each year, selling out some of the most beautiful venues on the continent.
