Support of Harvard University to Recognize "Indigenous Peoples' Day"
The University continues to celebrate “Columbus Day” as an official university holiday. Rather then celebrate those who initiated the enslavement and genocide of Native peoples, we call for the celebration of Indigenous culture. Therefore, we demand that Harvard University recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day as an official university holiday.

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!
