Event Details

This event is presented by Mid Michigan College in partnership with Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, Central Michigan University, Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture & Lifeways, and 7th Generation with a focus on Cultures, Contributions, & Resilience: Indigenous Peoples Day honors the past, present, and futures of Native peoples and celebrates the cultural contributions of Native peoples.

Indigenous Peoples Day stands as a testament to the growing global recognition of the need to honor and uplift the voices, cultures, and contributions of Indigenous peoples. It is a crucial step toward rectifying historical inaccuracies and addressing the systemic injustices that Indigenous communities have endured for centuries. By celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day, societies around the world are not only embracing a more comprehensive understanding of history but also committing to a more just and equitable future for all.
