Goodbye, Columbus: SOU Celebrates Indigenous People

Oct 5, 2017

Once upon a time kids got the day off from school on Columbus Day.  Then we learned a bit more about Christopher Columbus, and his day got downgraded a bit. 

The post office will be closed on Monday October 9th, but not much else. 

On the Southern Oregon University campus, Indigenous Peoples Day will be observed instead, with a variety of ceremonies. 

Lupe Sims is the student who advocated for the observance. 

She and Four Arrows, former director of Lakota University, are our guests.
