Oct. 11 is Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a holiday to honor and celebrate the original inhabitants of North America. This day recognizes the resilience and strength of Indigenous Peoples while bringing awareness to historical and current challenges their communities face.

Auburn University and The Office of Inclusion and Diversity recognize the vast historical impact of Indigenous People, both in Auburn and throughout the country. Auburn is committed to supporting the Indigenous members of its community and acknowledges the many Indigenous tribes native to Alabama, including the Muscogee Creek population that still calls the state home.

The Auburn Family is invited to learn more by getting involved with the Cross Cultural Center for Excellence, as well as the American Indigenous Organization. For more information on Auburn’s commitment to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive campus community, please visit the Office of Inclusion and Diversity through its website, on Instagram, new DEI landing page or by signing up for the OID newsletter.
