Indigenous Peoples' Day is a meaningful holiday that recognizes the past and current state of colonization for Indigenous Peoples. It celebrates our fortitude and resiliency to continue our Indigenous ways of life. Parts of our cultures, languages, and histories have been lost in the past and are in danger of continuing to be lost today. This day reminds us of our responsibility as today's Indigenous Peoples to continue to reclaim and revitalize our Indigeneity.

Programming for this year's Indigenous Peoples' Day includes an opening ceremony, healing march and fire, a keynote speaker, panel discussion, and a music celebration.
