Proud to Be Indigenous is about you, and making your voice heard.
How can you get involved? It's easy, no matter where you are:

We want people to share photos and stories and celebrate their Indigenous culture. And we want Indigenous People from around the world to connect with each other. Proud to Be Indigenous is about you, and making your voice heard.

Indigenous Peoples from around the world will be descending on New York City for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) from May 12- 23rd.

While most of us can't make it to New York, our voices need to be heard! 

Our goal is to create a storm of online activity during UNPFII so that Indigenous voices everywhere are heard.

 This year's theme is "Pass The Talking Stick." We'll be focusing on language and all that it encompasses – history, stories, music, communication, connections, and more. We want Indigenous People to post photos and videos expressing why they are Proud To Be Indigenous with the hashtag #Proud2BIndigenous or #P2BI on Causes, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. 

Not Indigenous?
We still want you to join us! We believe that everyone has the right to be proud of their communities, heritage, and traditions. Unfortunately, this right has been denied to Indigenous Peoples for so long. We all need to join together to celebrate and protect our common humanity and all the beautiful cultures of this earth. So take a picture with a sign saying that you're a proud supporter of Indigenous Peoples and we'll post it too!

And if you only have email, just email the photo to [email protected] and we will share it for you.
