Indigenous People's Day is a celebration of indigenous culture and resistance. It is also a protest against Christopher Columbus's "discovery of the New World." We will address the myths about Columbus as well as expose the truth regarding the legacy of genocide, slavery, rape and plunder of the Americas that he initiated.

This event will include an open mic for poetry, spoken word, chanting, poster protesting and a Mexica (Aztec) dance ceremony.

LOCATION: Main Quad (Near flagpole)
