Indigenous People’s Day Observance, 2017

Indigenous People’s Day, 2017
Monday, October 9, 1pm to 3pm
Hammond St. Congregational Church, 28 High St, Bangor
On August 28, 2017, the Bangor City Council voted unanimously that “the 2nd Monday of October shall be known in the City of Bangor as Indigenous People’s Day.”  In honor of that declaration, local groups are sponsoring an Indigenous People’s Day observance on Monday, October 9th,  from 1 to 3pm, in the large vestry of the Hammond St. Congregational Church in Bangor.
Our plan is to feature a few speakers, sharing why it is important to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day and some specific examples of Native history and culture.  We will also take time, in small groups, to talk about how we can make IPD observances an ongoing part of our community.
Please join us and share with your friends and neighbors!  (FB event:  https://www.facebook.com/events/783687465166465/)
