Indigenous Peoples' Week Oct 10-17

Cal Poly Humboldt's 29th annual Indigenous Peoples’ Week (IPW) honors Native American history, culture, and art and focuses on issues that impact Indigenous communities. It will be held Monday, October 10th through Monday, October 17th.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day was first adopted in 1992 in the city of Berkeley, California in place of Columbus Day. The recognition brings awareness to the injustices that took place against Native Americans as a result of Columbus’s false narrative of “discovering America.”

IPW events are coordinated by Indian Tribal & Educational Personnel Program, which has supported Native American Indian students for more than 50 years.
