The University of Wisconsin-Superior hosts a virtual celebration Monday, Oct. 12 for Indigenous Peoples Day.

The free community event begins with an Indigenous Peoples Day Proclamation at 4 p.m. followed by a 4:30 p.m. panel on the history and significance of Indigenous Peoples Day that includes Superior Mayor Jim Paine and Chantal Norrgard, an assistant professor of First Nation Studies at UWS.

“We are excited to once again celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day on our campus, this time with the city of Superior as they share the city’s resolution to recognize this important day,” said Kat Werchouski, director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. “It is crucial that we continue to acknowledge the history of this region and our country while still honoring the indigenous people and cultures that are very much here – alive and strong in community and contribution.”
