Indigenous Peoples Day, Today’s Woman Magazine, and Phylicia Ashley

Indigenous Peoples Day

Indigenous Peoples Day celebrates Native American history and culture and also gives balance and perspective to the otherwise one sided discussion of European exploration and colonization on Columbus Day.

Indigenous peoples, (also known as first peoples, aboriginal peoples or native peoples) are ethnic groups who are the original inhabitants of a given region, in contrast to groups that have settled, occupied or colonized the area more recently.

An Indigenous Peoples Day proclamation is a document that seeks to balance the discussion regarding colonization and European exploration, with the the promotion and recognition of Native American history and culture.

For this first historical ceremony in WAVE Country, there will be Native American music and dance at Fourth Street Live, featuring world renown Navajo flute player, R. Carlos Nakai and other talented, award winning performers.

There are about 30,000 Native Americans live in Kentucky representing over 200 tribes.
