Please put "IPDN General Funds" if you would like to donate funds for our annual celebration. If you would like to donate to a different event that IPDN is fundraising for, please indicate the name of that event instead of "General Funds."


We are passionate about making Indigenous Peoples Day a space where Indigenous (and non-Indigenous) folks can share experiences, engage in dialogue, and have a stronger, healthier sense of community and identity. We hope you will join us by supporting and engaging with Newton’s Indigenous Peoples Day Ceremonial Celebration! 


Artist and performer compensation and event insurance and infrastructure costs will amount to nearly $20,000. We are relying on a mixture of grant funding, market vendor fees, sponsorships from local businesses, and individuals to defray these costs.


Our outdoor, daytime, family-oriented cultural and spiritual celebration features:

  • Musical, dance, and spoken word performances.

  • A Talking Circle facilitated by elders from the Indigenous community.

  • Immersive educational cultural exhibits.

  • A Market featuring Indigenous artists and community groups.
