Boulder celebrates Indigenous Peoples Day with exciting events

Boulder is hosting a series of events to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day, honoring the culture and contributions of Native tribes.

Boulder, a city known for its commitment to honoring Indigenous Peoples Day, is offering a diverse range of events to recognize and celebrate the contributions and culture of the original inhabitants of North America. These events, supported by the city each year, aim to educate the community about Indigenous cultures and acknowledge the historical significance of the land.

One of the highlighted events is the Sunday celebration hosted by Right Relationship Boulder at the Dairy Arts Center. This event, taking place from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., offers a platform for educational panels, dancers, drummers, and vendors. The panels will cover important topics such as land access and reparations, the preservation of Native language, Indigenous food sovereignty, and the significance of ceremony and water protection.

Out Boulder County is also hosting a variety show that celebrates the intersection between queerness and indigeneity. This event, taking place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Equality Center of the Rocky Mountains, promises an evening of indigenous artist dance performances, food, and an educational component.

For those interested in exploring art, song, dance, and bookmaking workshops, La Vecindad at Mi Chantli offers an opportunity to amplify and reclaim indigenous heritage and wisdom. These workshops will be held on Sunday and Oct. 9 at 1750 30th St., Unit 22.

The University of Colorado Boulder's Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is hosting an event called "Honoring Indigenous Food Sovereignty." This event, taking place on Oct. 11, will showcase local Indigenous chefs and their culinary expertise. It will be held at the Kittredge Central multipurpose rooms A and B.

Lastly, Luna Cultura is hosting an event on Oct. 14 at the Atlas Black Box Theatre at CU Boulder. This event aims to create a participatory space where history, resilience, and the construction of alternatives for well-being are collectively explored. Attendees can expect activities such as storytelling, music, and food.

These events not only provide an opportunity to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day but also serve as a reminder of the rich cultures and contributions of Indigenous peoples. By actively engaging with these events, community members can gain a deeper understanding of the history of the land and the ongoing presence of Indigenous communities. It is through these initiatives that Boulder continues to foster inclusivity, respect, and appreciation for its Indigenous population.
