Learn more by checking out the panel organized by UNR's GSA, entitled "Indigenous Peoples Day: Truth, Reconciliation and Celebration", part of the Dialogue, Equity and Democracy Series. Featuring Dr. Deborah Harry (Associate Professor of Race, Gender and Identity), Dr. Myrton Running Wolf (Assistant Professor of Race and Media), and Markie Wilder (Indigenous Student Services).

  

 However, just recognizing the holiday isn't enough.

  

The pandemic has been especially threatening to indigenous communities that are already plagued with poor access to healthcare, higher disease rates, and discrimination (UN: COVID-19 and Indigenous Peoples). If possible, you can donate to First Nations. Donations fund grants, community programs, and frontline essential services for Native nations and Native-led organizations.
