AUSTIN: Indigenous People’s Day

Moviemiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlan or the Chicana/o Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA) invites you to the celebration and reclamation of the so called "Columbus Day." We believe that the celebration of this "holiday" oppresses and reinforces historical racism, sexism, homophobia and genocide toward indigenous peoples and other people of color.

For these reasons, in this day we reclaim our roots, our ancient ceremonies and our red blood. This day Native American, Indigenous and mestizo sisters and brothers unite to celebrate our connection to the mother earth and the four directors of ab-yala.

Join us! We will have:
Mexica/Chichimeca Danzantes
Spoken Word
Drum Circle
Open Mic
