Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day! Indigenous Peoples' Day is a day to support and celebrate the history, culture, resistance, and resilience of Indigenous people in the Americas and around the world. We'd like to share ideas for actions you can take to commemorate Indigenous Peoples' Day and resources to continue supporting and learning about and from Indigenous communities every day.

Cultural Survival

This organization, whose goal is to advance Indigenous peoples' rights and cultures worldwide, has 11 things you can do on Indigenous Peoples' Day. Their suggestions include learning about the Native peoples whose land we live on, attending a local or virtual Indigenous Peoples' Day event, and donating to Indigenous-led organizations. 


IllumiNative's resources include an Indigenous Peoples' Day Toolkit, 25 Native American comedians to follow, and K-5 lesson plans created by Native youth to support teachers.

NDN Collective's LANDBACK Campaign

Today is the official launch of the NDN Collective's LANDBACK Campaign, an effort to achieve Indigenous justice, dismantle white supremacy, and return Indigenous lands to Indigenous hands. You can watch the October 10 webinar announcing the campaign with members of the NDN Collective, Movement for Black Lives, About Face: Veterans Against the War, and United We Dream on NDN's Facebook Page.
