Date: 10/9/17 Time: 4:30-5:30
Location: Columbus Circle Syracuse, New York 13202
We gather to celebrate the many and varied contributions of the world’s Indigenous Peoples. We gather at the statue of Columbus because it is a clear reminder of his legacy of attempted genocide and land theft. Standing atop the heads of indigenous peoples, located squarely between the Church and Government buildings, located on land stolen from the Onondaga Nation, it is a clear monument to the Doctrine of Discovery, racism,and the oppressive structures of colonialism that continue to affect all of us today.
We gather here during a teachable moment to discuss the ongoing impacts of that legacy and to commit ourselves to reversing it.
Speakers and Music to be announced.
Organized by Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON), a grassroots effort of Central New Yorkers and project of the Syracuse Peace Council. NOON supports the sovereignty of the Onondaga Nation’s traditional government, their Land Rights Action and collaborates with them on environmental protection and restoration.
