There are 3 comments on Nine Ways to Spend Your Indigenous Peoples Day Weekend

  1. I am deeply disappointed that BU Today chose a cover image of gravestones to represent Indigenous People’s Day weekend. Even if the article contains seasonal activities unrelated to the holiday, the choice of imagery implies that Indigenous People are dead, not living members of the community. Please consider updating.

    1. FYI, using gravestones as the thumbnail for indigenous peoples day is really insensitive given the long history of genocide and the “extinct Indian” trope. Please educate yourselves and do better.

  2. I agree with the other comments. You should have opted to use an image celebrating Indigenous People’s Day, such as an image from the celebrations in Newton from the previous years. Why wasn’t the first choice to use an image celebrating the holiday? Shameful.
