Best alternative to Columbus Day in San Francisco area on Monday
Published October 11, 2015
ALCATRAZ ISLAND-American Indians and their allies will gather for Indigneous Peoples’ Day Sunrise Ceremony on Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay early Monday morning.
It is an annual event that provides a strong alternative to those who celebrate Columbus Day.
Tomorrow’s celebtation will be the 32nd time in the last 33 years, the American Indian community has journeyed to Alcatraz Island. The only interruption in the long tradition came two years ago when the event was canceled due to the federal government shutdown. Alcatraz Island is operated by the U.S. Parks Service, therefore the event had to be canceled.
The event also commemorates the 1969-71 occupation of Alcatraz Island by the “Indians of All Tribes.”American Indians consider Alcatraz Island sacred because it is an island where Ohlone ancestors held ceremonies for centuries.
