Indigenous People's Day Celebration
Celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day at Valle De Oro National Wildlife Refuge on Monday, Oct. 14, from 5pm until 7pm. This event is meant to explore efforts to reclaim traditional Columbus Day celebrations as Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations by providing a meaningful dialogue about the human species, responsibility and sovereignty. This event is co-sponsored by 516 ARTS and focuses on honoring traditional ecological knowledge. There are speakers from local pueblos—including Jemez Pueblo Cultural Leader Brophy Toledo—as well as a special dance performance by youth from Jemez Pueblo, culminating the celebration. All activities honor the Earth, its people and all life upon it. It's free and all ages may attend. For more information, please telephone 242-1445 or 248-6667.
