Indigenous Peoples Day March (Oct 9 Oklahoma City OK)

  • 200 North Walker Avenue Oklahoma City, OK, 73102 United States (map)

We will march/walk on Couch Drive over to City Hall on 200 N. Walker, where we will ask speakers, singers and musicians to take part in bringing a message of celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day in OKC. Oklahoma City is the ONLY major urban center in the state that has not recognized Indigenous People's Day; the City Council has voted two years in a row NOT to recognize the 2nd Monday in October as a tribute to Native Americans. 

Wear native dress and/or regalia to show your native pride. We invite all parties who wish to bring drums,flutes, or other types of musical instruments to bring them, lets dance, sing and show our indigenous pride!

Please let us know if you are interested in speaking, singing, or performing at this event so we can plan accordingly. CONTACTS/ORGANIZERS: Brenda S. Golden (Mvskoke) | S.P.I.R.I.T./Wealaka Camp, and Ashley Nicole (AST/Oglala Lakota) | Stop the Plains All American Pipeline.
