A previous Indigenous Peoples' Day on the Sundial

A previous Indigenous Peoples’ Day on the Sundial

Today at 6:oopm, Columbia will be honoring the Lenni-Lenape people by installing a plaque in John Jay Courtyard. The Lenape lived in this area before the colonization of the Americas, and the push for a plaque began last year when Columbia’s Native American Council started circulating a petition. This installation comes, of course, on Columbus Day, which the University does not recognize as a holiday. You can check out the Native American Council’s Facebook event for tonight here.
