INDIGENOUS PEOPLES' DAY MONDAY, OCT 11

On Monday, October 11 (second Monday in October) we celebrate the history and contributions of Native Americans on Indigenous Peoples' Day. Native people continue to fight to maintain the integrity and viability of indigenous societies. American Indian history is one of cultural persistence, creative adaptation, renewal, and resilience.

Siuslaw School District appreciates the picture provided by the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians (ctclusi.org) of a local "Canoe Journey at Sunrise" that was incorporated into this posting.  We encourage you to visit the Abundance StoryMap on their website, which gives voice to their stories, culture, and enrichment of public school curriculum in Oregon.
