Curriculum and resources for Indigenous People’s Day and beyond

In 2018, Oklahoma City declared the second Monday in October to be solely Indigenous People’s Day. Formerly Columbus Day, Indigenous People’s Day has evolved as a response to the harm caused to Indigenous people through celebrating Christopher Columbus and other Europeans who oppressed and committed crimes against the Native Americans in the United States. 

Our friends with Oklahoma City Public Schools Native American Student Services have compiled and provided resources so that both Native and non-Native families can learn more about their own heritage, find information about other tribes and cultures and share these opportunities for learning with their teachers and educators.
