http://bouldercolorado.gov/From Saturday, Oct. 12, through Monday, Oct. 14, Boulder will hold a series of events as part of its annual Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration. Boulder’s observance of Indigenous Peoples Day is part of a national effort to recognize and honor the existence, culture and contributions of the original inhabitants of North America on the day that has for the past 85 years been observed as Columbus Day. 

Indigenous Peoples Day is celebrated by cities and counties across the United States, including: Denver, CO; Alpena, MI; Berkeley, CA; Bexar County, Texas; Albuquerque, NM; Anadarko, OK; Lawrence, KS; Minneapolis, MN; Olympia, WA; Portland, OR; St. Paul, MN; Santa Cruz, CA; and Seattle, WA. 

The City of Boulder and local organizations have come together to promote knowledge about Indigenous Peoples in the Boulder Valley. The three-day festivities, held throughout the city, will include dialogue on current issues of importance to Indigenous communities, a youth cultural experience, traditional dance and song and a parade – all focused on the stories, culture and history of the Indigenous Peoples of North America.
