Come out and support the 27th Annual Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day Pow Wow on October 12, 2019 at the ML King Civic Center Park in Berkeley, California. Full Circle will be there on remote to broadcast the event!!
Berkeley was the first American city to establish an Indigenous Peoples Day in place of Columbus Day, after indigenous groups and supporters came together to successfully urge City Council to establish the holiday. Since then, numerous cities and two states across the country now have their own holidays honoring indigenous communities. Columbus Day remains a national holiday, however, and cities such as Cincinnati have recently rejected proposals to establish Indigenous Peoples Days.
