2019 Indigenous Peoples Week at Humboldt - Humboldt State Now

2019 Indigenous Peoples Week at Humboldt

Native American students, faculty, and staff at Humboldt State University will host the 26th Annual Indigenous Peoples Week October 13-19. This event will focus on indigenous concerns and consist of films, art, panel discussions, potluck, dance, games, and more.

The HSU Library is hosting the traveling exhibit “Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness,” which will be celebrated at a Library reception on Tuesday, Oct., 2 – 3 p.m.

Indigenous Peoples Day was first adopted in 1992 by Berkeley, California in place of Columbus Day in order to bring awareness to the injustices that took place against Native Americans as a result of Columbus’s “discovering America.” This year, Washington, D.C. joins the eight states and 130 cities that have legally changed from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day.
