The Indigenous Peoples Day Newton ceremonial celebration is an annual event taking place on Indigenous Peoples Day in Newton, Massachusetts. We held the inaugural celebration in 2021.

our mission

To bring visibility and voice to Indigenous People in the City of Newton.

our vision

To plan and produce an annual ceremonial celebration on Indigenous Peoples Day in Newton.


Indigenous Peoples Day Newton 2022 will spotlight and celebrate the music, dance, poetry and visual art of diverse Native artists who currently live in the Northeast, and beyond.

It will be an outdoor, daytime, family-oriented cultural and spiritual celebration that is open, accessible, and welcoming to all Newton residents. The goal is to make concrete the city's recent recognition of Indigenous Peoples Day as an official city holiday. The intention is for this event to become a beloved annual event on our city's calendar.
