Indigenous Peoples’ Day and the Rise of Indigenous Voices

Indigenous Peoples Day proclamations are rapidly replacing Columbus Day across the U.S. In this episode, we talk to five Indigenous activists and organizers about their work and what Indigenous Peoples Day means to them.

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES’ DAY AND THE RISE OF INDIGENOUS VOICES

To date, at least 60 cities have eliminated Columbus Day and in its place have made Indigenous Peoples’ Day proclamations.  On this episode, we talk to 5 Indigenous organizers and activists about their work to change the narrative around Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples. Here, they give us practical advice about how to make similar changes in our communities.
