Indigenous People’s Day celebrates the cultures, histories, and contributions of Native and Indigenous peoples in the United States and across the world. It honors America’s first inhabitants and the Tribal nations that continue to thrive here today, recognizing their contributions and acknowledging their resilience and strength in the face of a centuries-long campaign of violence, displacement, assimilation, and terror wrought upon Native and Indigenous communities in the United States and beyond.
UConn Extension recognizes Native and Indigenous resilience and strength every day of the year.

We met at the Meechooôk Farm and discussed the expansion of their livestock enterprises. Learn more about our collaboration with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation at https://s.uconn.edu/mptn.
