The Indigenous Advocates Association will facilitate a live Zoom guided discussion  around the controversial celebration of Columbus Day and the efforts by many to replace it with Indigenous Peoples' Day.  
“This facilitation aims to educate our peers on National Indigenous People's Day and bring attention to it. The group IAA/Dig Deep and this event inspire empathy in our students, advocacy, awareness, and leadership.  It shines a light on often silenced communities and gives our students a window into different worlds.  This presentation will also introduce students to a new point of view of Columbus Day that many have probably not learned about.” Chaya, Caitlin & Danielle
