The Chattanooga-area Daughters of the American Revolution chapters recognized Native American Heritage for November. In honor, the Chattanooga Regent’s Council presented a signed proclamation to Mary Helms, manager in the Local History and Genealogy Department at the Chattanooga Public Library. 

The DAR website says, "As the indigenous people of our country, it is only fitting that NSDAR respect and value the American Indian. These first Americans are worthy of our understanding and appreciation.  The DAR American Indians Committee is entrusted to the continuing education of the history and culture of this community as well as the support of the educational and cultural pursuits of its citizens."

"We would like to thank Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke and County Mayor Jim Coppinger for signing these proclamations for DAR Day of Service," said Stacy Kehoe, regent of the Judge David Campbell.
