“In the spirit of solidarity and in celebration of the original people of North America, Indigenous Peoples Day was created to honor the past, present, and future of indigenous peoples, acknowledge the legacy of colonialism and to raise awareness of its present day impact on their communities. To celebrate the 1st Annual Indigenous Peoples Day we are honored to have Six Nations members, the Seneca Mothers, internationally renowned Standing Rock Activist Chase Iron Eyes and Lakota Wisdom Keeper Chief Bear Cross of the Ghost Nation to represent their voice and rich cultural legacy.”
