Our work is not limited to city and state governments — campuses across Massachusetts are also working to get their institutions to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day.
Students at Northeastern University have started organizing a campaign to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day in place of Columbus Day at their university. Check out their website for more information and to get involved: http://
Arts, Sciences, and Engineering faculty at Tufts voted to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day on February 24, 2016 after similar student government resolutions and student organizing.
For an example of what a student government resolution declaring Indigenous Peoples Day could look like, check out the Tufts Senate resolutions:
- Resolution Calling for Tufts University to Recognize the Historical and Present Day Significance of Celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day in Place of “Columbus Day”
- Resolution Calling for Tufts University to Support the Movement for Indigenous Peoples Day Boston
- A Resolution to Recognize Indigenous Peoples Day in Place of “Columbus Day”
