10/11/21 - Indigenous Peoples' Day

Holland Public School District celebrates and honors Indigenous Peoples' Day.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a holiday that celebrates the Native Americans, the original inhabitants of North America. Indigenous Peoples’ Day honors the beautiful indigenous traditions, cultures, and lives all around the world. Though it was initially proposed at a United Nation conference in 1977, the first state to actually hold a form of Indigenous Peoples’ Day (called Native American Day) was South Dakota in 1989. We take a stand for and support the indigenous people on this day. We should also offer our support to those who invest and uplift the indigenous communities.

For more information OR for resources on how to celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day in the classroom or at home, contact Taran McZee, HPS Director of Equity and Inclusion:
