Join us for our annual Indigenous People's Day Music & Art Showcase (formally known as the Anti-Columbus Day concert). We are inspired by the growing movement where cities across the nation are affirming Indigenous people. We stand in solidarity with Native folks in Minnesota and look forward to celebrating through creative expression the rich cultures we have maintained and transformed despite colonization and modern day imperialism.

In 2003. Los Nativos, a local Rhymesayers Entertainment Chicano hip hop group, hosted the first the Anti-Columbus Day concert and art showcase that used hip hop and community action to raise awareness around the effects of colonization on communities of color and celebrate indigenous culture through art and music. ACD (now Indigenous People’s Day Music and Art Showcase) featured Indigenous artists of the North and South as a way for Chicanx artists to carve out a space for the counter-narrative as Indigenous identified Chicanx artists and for nation-bridging as a Native arts community in the Twin Cities. Innovative for it’s time, the art portion soon outgrew the small concert venue in the 7th Street Entry and Dimensions of Indigenous, the art exhibition series was birthed in 2005.
