Proud to Be Indigenous Week

Posted on

Proud to Be Indigenous Week starts Sunday, May 11th. Are you part of it yet?!  

Indigenous Peoples from around the world will be descending on New York City for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) from May 12- 23rd. While most of us can’t make it to New York, our voices need to be heard!

Our goal is to create a storm of online activity during UNPFII so that Indigenous voices everywhere are heard. This year’s theme is “Pass The Talking Stick.”

We’ll be focusing on language and all that encompasses – history, stories, music, communication, connections, and more. We want Indigenous People to post photos and videos expressing why they are Proud To Be Indigenous with the hashtag #Proud2BIndigenous on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. We want people to share stories and celebrate their Indigenous culture. And we want Indigenous People from around the world to connect with each other. Proud to Be Indigenous is about you, and making your voice heard.

Join the conversation here.
