Antioch College recognizes Indigenous People’s Day today, October 14, 2019.

We encourage our community to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement on this land we occupy and beyond. We acknowledge that we could not exist as a college unless the Indigenous people were removed from this land. We pay respects to the Shawnee, Miami, and Ottawa Nations’ elders past and present.

The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and the Indigenous People and Native American Heritage Month Planning Committee, has organized a series of events in honor of Indigenous People‘s Day.
