On MON OCT 9th, from 10am – 5pm, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History will be open with FREE admission in honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
We are encouraged to join and celebrate 14,000 years of Native culture in Oregon – from the First Americans at Paisley Caves to the dynamic cultures of today’s Tribes.
What is Indigenous Peoples Day?
Indigenous Peoples Day is a celebration and commemoration of indigenous American peoples, histories and cultures. The day is celebrated across the US and it is an official city and state holiday in certain parts of the country. The day began as a counter-celebration to Columbus Day which honors the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus. Columbus’s legacy is argued to represent violence and colonization particularly against the indigenous peoples of the Americas. In 2021, Joe Biden issued a presidential proclamation formally commemorating the holiday and was the first president to do so.
Luncheon $20, Beverage/Dessert Only $5
Reservation due by MON OCT 9, 2023
