Indigenous Peoples’ Day falls on October 9. This day used to be considered Columbus Day up to 1937, but many began calling it Indigenous Peoples’ day to honor the rich history and cultures of the Native American people and to call attention to the oppression and destruction that these people faced upon the arrival of Columbus and other European settlers.
Students are often first to hear and/or see things that may impact the safety of people in their community. It is common for students to be resistant to sharing information with adults because they worry that their peers will think that they are “snitches.” It is helpful to have a discussion with your children about the differences between snitching and reporting important information.
