Celebrating Indigenous People
Monday, October 12, 2020 marks what some people celebrate as "Columbus Day," in the United States of America. This "holiday," was established in 1934, when FDR made it into a National Holiday to pay homage to the man noted in history (depends on who's history book you read) that, "discovered," America. Since 1971, "Columbus Day," was designated as a Federal Holiday observed on the Second Monday in October. Now, more than ever, as part of supporting systemic change, we want to elevate stories about people with roots, and highlight culture, not colonists.
Today, October 12, 2020 we at High Beautiful publicly share that we observe and acknowledge Indigenous People' s Day in Solidarity with our Native American brothers, sisters and elders. We give thanks for the people who come from Native American ancestry and appreciate all of the beautiful people we've met throughout the years who have shared their culture with us.
Please take the time to explore your curiosity about the true history of Native Americans and other indigenous people from across the globe.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please check out a mini series on our social media pages about the people on their team, and their roots. We will roll these out October 12 - October 16, 2020.
