On Monday, October 10, the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian will join other cultural institutions, universities, and cities around the world to celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day. The day celebrates the contributions of indigenous people throughout the world, and acknowledges the many tribes who lived across America long before Christopher Columbus.

The museum will be open and free to the public from 10am-5pm, with a panel discussion on historical and political aspects of Indigenous Peoples' Day from 1-2:30.
