On behalf of the Indigenous Women's Initiatives you are invited to Indigenous Peoples Day at The Buffalo History Museum. It is our goal to educated the public about the historical issues facing Haudenausaunee communities and the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples UNDRIP.  

We have held this event annually for over 10 years in Buffalo to promote the collective rights to exist with prior, free and informed consent. Presentations will include an introduction of which section of the UNDRIP applies to the issue being presented.  

In 2017, The Mayor of Buffalo and the Erie County Executive made proclamations that August 9 was to be Indigenous Peoples Day/Nuclear Free Future Day and the interfaith/peace, native and academic communities have participated. Free.
