Indigenous Peoples’ Day Tour

October 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, join curator of Native American Art Dorene Red Cloud (Oglala Lakota) for a tour focused on Native American and First Nations art in the new exhibit, Expressions of Life: Native Art in North America.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a holiday that celebrates and raises awareness of the many cultures of Indigenous or Native American peoples’ all across the United States. In 1977, participants at the United Nations International Conference on Discrimination against Indigenous Populations in the Americas, proposed that Indigenous Peoples’ Day replace Columbus Day. Indigenous Peoples’ Day recognizes that Native people are the first inhabitants of the Americas, including the lands that later became the United States of America. It also urges Americans to rethink the history they learned as a child and help to understand the true history of the Americas.
