Summary

The past few months have seen a rapid expansion of global awareness of systemic problems that threaten our world, such as anti-Black/Brown racism, healthcare inequalities, and conflict. On October 12th, 2020, we take the next steps to understand the structures of racism and dehumanization in the USA as we explore the concept of contact: What does it mean to respect indigenous land and livelihood, such that non-indigenous folks can genuinely co-exist with traditional knowledge and culture.

Challenge

October 12th, 2020 marks 528 years since Columbus first arrived on the American continent, sparking half a millennium of genocide, denial of human rights, theft and desecration of sacred land, and destruction of the natural environment. This day has been reclaimed as Indigenous Peoples' Day in the United States, raising awareness of the continued oppression of Native and Indigenous Peoples on the continent, and celebrating their contributions to society and the world.

Solution

Our full-day broadcast encourages dialogue and critical thinking through interaction. We have several offerings, including: - Different tribes coming together to teach us songs - Webinar on the importance of Indigenous frontline defenders' knowledge of land management to fight climate change. - Talk with Elders & experts on respect of Indigenous land and livelihood, such that non-indigenous folks can genuinely co-exist with traditional knowledge and culture. - Special Hoop Dance performance

Long-Term Impact

As the country goes through another racial reckoning, we felt it is important also to draw attention to the legacy and the lies on which the country was founded. Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples Day seems like an excellent place to start. We will continue to promote stories of human development, social justice, and arts and culture, thinking of ways to bring news of solidarity, resistance, and resilience to the main stage. Your support ensures these important stories can be shared.
