By celebrating Indigenous Peoples' Day in Carbondale Illinois, we can celebrate and honor the Indigenous peoples of America while commemorating their shared history and culture. Celebrating Columbus Day is the celebration of  extreme violence, brutality, slavery, oppression, and forced conversion. By celebrating Indigenous Peoples' Day our community can strengthen its bonds with all people and reject the ideas that violence, brutality, slavery, and oppression are moral and acceptable.
