Indigenous People's Day : Honoring Leonard Peltier (Oct 8 Los Angeles CA)

  • Hollywood & Highland 6801 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90028 United States (map)

On August 30th the LA City Council voted to approve Indigenous People's Day, as the second Monday of October: 14 yes votes and 1 no vote. The City changes will be completed by October 2018, it will no longer be Christopher Columbus Day! The LA County will soon make this change, too. 

This year's celebration must offer recognition and an honor for Leonard Peltier, our relative is still imprisoned. 

Join us as there is much to do and we must take time to share the beautiful day as Indigenous People's Day and work together for our relative's freedom.
