DONATE TODAY to Indigenous Peoples' Day Philly
SUPPORT OUR MISSION
Indigenous Peoples' Day Philly's mission is to cultivate an active Native American / Indigenous presence in the city of Philadelphia through cultural, educational and community building initiatives that uplift our Native traditions, creative-economies and histories.
SUPPORT OUR ANNUAL AWARENESS CELEBRATIONS:
Indigenous Peoples' Day Philly
This will be the fourth year of Indigenous Peoples' Day in the city of Philadelphia and it will be a digital awareness celebration on OCT 10 & OCT 12 that will bring Native artists and dignitaries to share their perspectives and stories about the importance to amplify Native Narratives (Lenni-Lenape, Taino and other relatives) instead of the myth of Christopher Columbus. WATCH ON: ipdphilly.org
SUPPORT KICK-START TWO NEW PROJECTS:
- A podcast series where we will invite Native dignitaries, performers, organizers, those who have participated in the “Indigenous Peoples Day Philly” festivals, and other guest speakers to amplify Native Narratives.
- An awareness presentation series for schools, libraries and organizations where we will speak about the importance to celebrate Native American / Indigenous Peoples' History across Pennsylvania's public schools instead of celebrating the myth of Christopher Columbus Day and other harmful holidays.
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
As we seek to increase our impact in Philadelphia every year, we require funds to support our annual awareness celebration and year around programs. All proceeds will go directly to pay for our digital festival 2020 and year around programs.
Our first benchmark is to raise $5,000. We are also applying for matching grants.
Here is our wish list:
$5,000 - To support the digital Concert and Panels for October 10 & October 12 – Representing a diversity of Indigenous performers and dignitaries.
$5,000 - To kick-start IPD Philly 2021
$5,000 - To kick-start a podcast series this year to amplify Native Narratives.
$5,000 - To kick-start our awareness campaign about the importance to celebrate Indigenous Peoples' History instead of the myth of Christopher Columbus Day and other harmful holidays.
TOTAL - $20,000
