The Tucson Indigneous Peoples’ Day Committee is a collective of individuals who represent various Arizona organizations, including the Alianza Indigena Sin Fronteras, Yoeme Commission on Human Rights, Tonatierra, Alliance for Global Justice, Gloo Factory, Tucson Peace Center, Pima Arts Council, and Sustainable Nations. We have come together around the vision of establishing Indigneous Peoples’ Day on the second Monday in October throughout Arizona; this vision includes Indigenous tribes, cities, and counties throughout Arizona.
See below for a link to the sign-on letter, the proposed legislation, organizational supporters, and a list of cities and tribal nations who have already established Indigenous Peoples’ Day in their districts, cities, and counties.
