Organizers said that the day was “dedicated to honoring our Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island as original stewards of the lands on which we now live, and acknowledging the Land as an ancestral homeland of Lenapehoking.”

They began with the Hoskie & Nesbah Walk Of Honor. They walked across the Brooklyn Bridge (from Brooklyn to Manhattan and back) “in memory of Missing, Murdered and Stolen Native American children and youth who lost their lives prematurely,” they said on their website www.antinanco.org.

They had Indigenous ceremonies in Brooklyn Bridge Park. A Park Ranger forced Indigenous people to put out their sacred incense. The burning of herbs or incense is a practice held sacred by many indigenous cultures around the world.

Before New York City, before New Amsterdam — there was Lenapehoking. New York City is Lenapehoking. Lenapehoking is translated as ‘Homelands of the Lenape’. Lenapehoking is a term for the lands historically inhabited by the Native American people known as the Lenni-Lenape or simply “Lenape” (named the Delaware people or Delaware Nation by early European invaders).

The Lenape Homeland included all of New Jersey, northern Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania, and southeastern New York state. The Lenape people are still here!

The Indigenous Peoples Day NYC Committee asks people to SIGN THE PETITION: “Recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day NYC”. The petition says, in part, “Recognize Indigenous Peoples Day request that New York City officially declare the second Monday of October to be Indigenous Peoples Day in order to recognize the sacrifices and contributions of the first peoples of this land.

Prominent historians have heavily documented Christopher Columbus’s vast legacy of violence, slavery, and oppression of Indigenous Peoples, and it is a critical time in our nation’s history where we must acknowledge and celebrate facts. Celebrating it continues the cross-generational historic trauma being perpetrated against the indigenous community causing continual genocide.”

Thousands are calling for the removal of the 5 Christopher Columbus statues in New York City and replace Columbus statues with sculptures of Lenni-Lenape people.

Gabriel Sandoval writes on TheCity.NYC, “In the city colonists built on Lenape land centuries ago, the number of Native Americans is on the rise, new census figures show as New York celebrates the first official Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

In the five boroughs of New York City, some 180,866 — or 2% — identify as “American Indian or Alaska Native” alone or in a combination of races in a city of 8.8 million, according to the 2020 Census. That’s up from 1.3% in 2010, when the decennial census tallied 111,749 of 8.1 million people.”
