Indigenous Peoples’ Day

As we celebrate the second year of recognizing Indigenous Peoples’ Day in the City of Phoenix, we are honored to celebrate the cultural richness of Indigenous peoples throughout Indian Country – this year focusing of the power of spoken word, performance, film and intergenerational transference of knowledge.
