NativeAmericanDanceOn Monday October 12, we celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day rather than Columbus Day. We seek to reclaim and redefine this day to celebrate the rich cultures and histories of indigenous people in the Americas, rather than a day dedicated to the forced colonization of native peoples. The day will start with a Sunrise Ceremony followed by performances from Indigenous people around the world. It will be a day of healing, sharing and celebrating indigeneity.

The event is looking for funds to bring in various artists and performers from across the hemisphere. They will be sharing their cultures, stories, and traditions throughout the day. Help us redefine this day into a positive and powerful day in celebration of the survival and resistance of 500 years of oppression and colonization. Donate at: http://www.gofundme.com/x5p8n3b
