Fight for recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day in your city!
In the last two years, the Movement for Black Lives has inspired people to protest and reject racist symbols and institutions. This has led to several positive changes for Native people, including the renaming of the Washington NFL team, exposure of medical racism in Indian Country, and removal of racist monuments. However, Columbus Day remains a widely celebrated holiday in the U.S. that glorifies a false narrative of America’s founding and erases the genocide of Native peoples. Learn how to advocate for the celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day during the time of Covid-19 in our Indigenous Peoples’ Day Toolkit.
Download our Activist’s Guide for Supporting Indigenous Peoples’ Day Toolkit here, improved and updated to meet the needs of advocates during COVID-19.
In partnership with Amplifier and Nia Tero, we are proud to share our Indigenous People’s Day Lesson Plan. Designed for both in-classroom as well as remote learners, this project-based lesson plan is written by Teaching Tolerance Advisory Board Member Maribel Gonzalez and asks: What is the impact on human lives and property, biodiversity, and air and water quality when we honor and restore land stewardship to Indigenous peoples?
