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!

Join with us on this day as we dedicate ourselves to the Dances of Liberation and Songs of freedom, and remember those who have sacrificed their lives for us to be here today. A tobacco blessing to the fire will be given and prayers will be offered for the coming generations.
