Indian Country Today
It’s been a long and eventful month in Indian Country. Because news is happening so fast, here are the ICT stories you should catch up from September. (Including the celebratory news that ICT is now officially an Indigenous nonprofit news organization.)
Take a look at and share the events list for the Day of Remembrance. Canada will mark its first official National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Sept. 30, an opportunity to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools. So many are holding events in the US for boarding school survivors.
Indigenous Peoples Day and Native American Heritage Month are also around the corner so email us links to events happening near you or virtually at firstname.lastname@example.org.
