Harvard's Charter of 1650 outlines the specific mission to educate "...the English and Indian youth of this country." Embedded in its longstanding history, Harvard made a commitment to Native peoples and we ask that this commitment be preserved, beginning with the formal recognition of Indigenous Peoples' Day.
We believe the official recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day will accurately reflect Harvard’s historic charter, represent the ongoing cultivation of diversity on campus, and delineate a path for further growth.
However, we cannot make this change alone. Please fill out this form to show your support!
