Gain Perspective from Dr. Hedy Lemar Walls

Three years ago in Minnesota, we changed Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. Minnesota is home to almost a dozen tribal nations. This year the holiday is October 11 to honor native cultures and recognize their history, culture and achievements.

One unique commemoration experience to participate in is the Indigenous Peoples Day Sunrise Ceremony on October 11 at Thomas Beach on Bde Maka Ska in Minneapolis hosted by the Metropolitan Urban Indian Directors (MUID). For more information, visit facebook.com/muid.group.

The opportunity to learn more about our neighbors and the beautiful tapestry of the cultures that make up our community is an exciting part of our equity work.

Whether it is the Equity Leadership Institute, Transformational Workplace Culture series, custom training, free online classes or more, the YMCA Equity Innovation Center is here for you to intentionally engage in thought-provoking experiences and resources that will expand your knowledge and skills.  We hope you will join us as you continue your equity journey.
