NAIC UT Austin says
In protest of Columbus Day last year, NAIC led a campaign to have UT recognize Indigenous People’s Day. With the support of the UT student, staff, and faculty communities, over 2,000 signatures we collected.

On Monday October 12th, 2015 we will celebrate Indigenous People’s Day on campus through two events:

Film Screening: Young Lakota
Texas Union Theatre
Co-sponsored by Palestinian Solidarity Committee

We will be screening "Young Lakota," a film that follows three young people on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota as they fight for reproductive rights for women in their community. After the film, there will be a panel discussion about local efforts for reproductive justice and making connections between different communities and their struggles.

We invite Native American and Indigenous students to come to these events, and also welcome all students with interest in Native American and Indigenous Studies.

Prior to the film screening, there will be a meet-and-greet in the Multicultural Engagement Center with NAIC and the NAIS department. This will be an opportunity for native students to become acquainted with one another and connect with professors involved in the NAIS department.
