Since 1915 Native American Heritage has been publicly recognized.  Since the turn of the century November has been declared Native American Heritage Month.  It is important to recognize the rich heritage and contributions of Native Americans to the service to our Nations military. 

In 2007 Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs partnered with the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council to create an outreach program to ensure Native American Veterans are provided professional assistance and advocacy.  The Tribal Veteran Service Officer (TVSO) Division has worked since its beginning to provide services including Representation to the Federal VA and the submission of local and State benefits applications on behalf of Native Americans throughout the State of Minnesota.
