Indigenous Peoples' Day Celebration

October 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

Indigenous Futures with Hartford Public Library CT

Indigenous Peoples’ Day Celebration will be presented Monday, October 12 at 6:00 p.m. by the Hartford Public Library online with Facebook Live.   This is a teachable moment opportunity to sit as a family with your teens to address important local and national issues.
This summer we saw Indigenous artists and organizers shifting culture and society in conjunction with the Black Lives Matter movement: taking down statues of Christopher Columbus and other colonizers around the world, continuing to fight for and win legal victories in land treaties, and changing the name of the Washington Football Team are just a few examples. How do we continue decolonizing the land, our communities, as well as our minds and hearts? What does a pro-Indigenous future look like? Hear perspectives from Indigenous artists, academics, and community leaders.
This Indigenous Peoples’ day, hear local Indigenous peoples’ visions for tomorrow.
