Panel Discussion: How to Become an Ally to Indigenous Peoples

This is a past event.

Indigenous People’s Day is a holiday that seeks to honor the histories, contributions, legacies and experiences of the Indigenous Peoples of North America often referred to as Native American. It is commemorated throughout the United States on the second Monday in October. At Mount Holyoke, we honor the legacies of Indigenous tribes in Western Massachusetts who were the original caretakers of the area that we now occupy. Throughout the day, we are offering educational opportunities centered on understanding Indigenous cultures and histories.

The day-long event will culminate with a panel entitled: "Indigenous People's Day Teach-In: How to be an Ally to Indigenous People."  Panelists include  Claudia Fox Tree, Johnny Cole, Marika Hamilton and Jennifer Wolfrum.
