Indigenous People's Day

The second Monday in October is recognized at the federal level in this country as Columbus Day in honor of the “Discovery of America” by Christopher Columbus. However many municipalities (including Portland) and a number of states have replaced this holiday with an observance of Indigenous People’s Day. In honor of that and inspired by our Social Justice Focus for this church year, in today’s service a group of Wy’east Members and Friends will share their reflections on the first chapter of a proposed “Everybody Reads” book titled An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States (For Young People) which “shatters our understanding of the United States as a land ‘discovered’ in the ‘New World.’” 

Listen to the Service
