Indigenous Peoples Day #IndigenousPeoplesDay

Celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day. Hashtag #IndigenousPeoplesDay

Used frequently as a counterpoint to Columbus Day.

Each year Planeta.com hosts Indigenous Peoples Week to focus on travel and tourism.

We also celebrate August 9, the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People. This event recognizes the achievements and contributions made by Indigenous Peoples.

There are other holidays and commemorations of the world’s Indigenous Peoples including August 9, the United Nations’ International Day of the World’s Indigenous People / Día Internacional de los Pueblos Indígenas / Journée internationale des peuples autochtonesa.

For the past few years Planeta.com has co-hosted a week-long celebration of Indigenous culture and tourism. Indigenous Peoples Week is our attempt to educate and inspire ourselves.  For those keen on following the dialogue, keep an eye on the Indigenous Tourism page on Facebook  and follow Indigenous culture on Twitter.

In the USA, why not celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day in lieu of Columbus Day? USA Today reports that more cities are recognizing Native Americans on Columbus Day.  The roots of rethinking the holiday go back several decades. Rethinking Columbus, the seminal educational report, was published in 1991.

Happy #IndigenousPeoplesDay. Everyday.
