30+ Day Racial Equity Indigenous Peoples Challenge
October 24th – day 24
Today is Day 24. Here are the reading, watching and listening material for the challenge. Remember you can choose 1 learning experience, or all. It is entirely up to you.
READ: Last Lakota Code Talker Clarence Wolf Guts was not the sort of hero who capitalized on his exploits; he never wrote any books or ran for office, and you could count his speaking appearances on one hand. When we met him in 2007, he was living almost as simply as he did when he was a boy on the Rosebud Reservation in the 1920s.
WATCH: Creating A More Equitable Society Is In White Americans’ Self Interest – Dr. Ibram X. Kendi joins Stephen Colbert to discuss what it takes to call one’s self antiracist, and how he believes it’s in everyone’s interest to end the racist policies that cause inequality in this country (12 minutes)
LISTEN: Indigenous People React to Indigenous Representation in Film And TV – Conversation with a diverse range of Indigenous people by FBE about media depictions of Indigenous people, Columbus day, and Indigenous identity. (15 minutes)
ACT: Support the Wellesley Indigenous People’s Day Campaign by purchasing a yard sign at https://ipdwellesley.org/yard-signs/
