Indigenous People’s Day Celebration

The 6th annual Indigenous People’s Day Celebration will take place on Monday October 11, 2021, at 5:30-6:30pm on Main Hall Green/Kaeyes Mamaceqtawuk Plaza (near the Mudd library).

All are invited to learn about the meaning behind the new Otachiah (Crane) 2021 art sculpture created by Oneida architecture professor Chris Cornelius and the historical context behind the Menominee words “Kaeyes Mamaceqtawuk.” 

A blessing of our new plaza will be given in the Menominee language by elder Dennis Kenote of the Menominee Nation.

A pow-wow demonstration by drummers, singers, and dancers from the Oneida Nation will be in attendance.

Traditional Indigenous food will be served. 

This collaborative healing outdoor event is free and open to the public. Please join us – all are welcome!
