Indigenous Peoples Day 2013

University of Texas at Austin

Recognizing and Celebrating Native and Indigenous Communities!
Monday, October 14th, 2013 from 11:00am - 2:00pm in the South Mall (

Indigenous Peoples Day is an event that reexamines Columbus Day by challenging the dominant narratives surrounding the “discovery of America” by Christopher Columbus, and the current celebration of colonialism through this federal holiday. This event provides a space  to reveal and re-analyze the genocide, and oppression suffered by indigenous peoples across the Abya Yala/Americas as well as their survival and resistance. Transforming Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day allows us to take our first step to a better future. A future that respects the rights of indigenous peoples, the natural environment, gender equity over global patriarchy, and free and equal speech over hate speech.

The event will include Danza Mexica/Azteca, turtle mold painting activities, food and much more! We hope you are able to join us as we reclaim this day.

This event is free and open to students, faculty, staff and community members.
