City of Boulder to Host Annual Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration
The City of Boulder and local organizations have come together to promote knowledge about Indigenous Peoples in the Boulder Valley
From Oct. 8 through Oct. 11, Boulder will hold a series of events as part of its annual Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration. Boulder’s celebration is part of a national effort to recognize and honor the existence, culture and contributions of the original inhabitants of North America on the day that has for the past 83 years been observed as Columbus Day.
Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations have been adopted by cities and counties across the United States, including: Denver, CO; Alpina, MI; Berkeley, CA; Bexar County, Texas; Albuquerque, NM; Anadarko, OK; Lawrence, KS; Minneapolis, MN; Olympia, WA; Portland, OR; St. Paul, MN; Santa Cruz, CA; and Seattle, WA.
The City of Boulder and local organizations have come together to promote knowledge about Indigenous Peoples in the Boulder Valley. The four-day festivities, held throughout the city, will include intertribal dance and song, speakers, documentary films and a workshop – all focused on the stories, culture and history of the Indigenous Peoples of North America.
