Indigenous Peoples Day NYC 2019

Oct 14 | Mon | 2PM |
View Website

The Indigenous Peoples Celebration of New York City is seeking funds for its fifth annual FREE gathering on Randall's Island, which will take place over two days on October 13th and 14th and will feature many indigenous performers and speakers! As always, we throw this event to honor and celebrate the Indigenous Peoples of this land. Our purpose is to highlight and support the current national movement to change outdated holidays and monuments honoring figures who have brought harm on the vulnerable populations. Specifically, we support and propose that Columbus Day be changed to Indigenous Peoples Day in New York City and that all monuments honoring Columbus be removed, as honoring this man is rooted in inaccuracy and celebrates a tragic history of genocide and violence against the Indigenous Peoples of this country. New York City's celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day would contribute greatly to the healing of America's indigenous community, and it would honor this community's resilience, strength, and ongoing contributions to American culture and history. Indigenous Peoples and their voices are more important now than ever, with this community leading the way on current, urgent issues like the growing call for greater environmental awareness and protections.
