UAS Indigenous Day Community Dialogue

Columbus Day is a federally recognized holiday, which is problematic because of a documented violent history with indigenous people in the Americas. UAS students have voted to recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day on the day that Columbus Day is typically recognized, in hopes to initiate conversations on decolonization and healing. The Egan Library hosted a box to collect ideas October 12, 2015 to October 16, 2015. Wooch.een will read the collected anonymous responses and publicly discuss on November 7th at an open community dialogue in the Egan Library, 12-3PM. For more information please contact the Native and Rural Student Center at 907-796-6043, or email uas_jywe@uas.alaska.edu
