Indigenous Peoples Day (Dia de la Raza), October 11, 2004, Annual Sun-Rise Gathering at Alcatraz Island to celebrate our survival and challenge the myths of Discovery of America!
The General Public is invited to attend the annual Sun-Rise Gathering at Alcatraz Island on Monday, October 11, 2004 (State Holiday) to commemorate 512 years (1492-2004) of Indigenous Peoples Resistance to Colonization in the Americas!
The theme of “Resistance to Colonization” and Indigenous Peoples’ struggles for Self-Determination, Treaty Rights, Protection of Sacred Sites, Lands and Resources, Traditional Knowledge and subsistence rights are the messages of this historic occasion. No to military industry, Yes to a Culture of Peace, and an End to Racism in the Americas!
