Proud To Be Indigenous Week Starts Today!
Wow, we cannot believe Proud To Be Indigenous Week is finally here! We are off to a great start. Indigenous Peoples from around the world have already sent in over 100 photos, including the Arawak, Azetc, Cherokee, Gwich’in, Hmar, Maasai, Maori, Maya, Shapibo, and Ogiek to name a few.
But we need your help to spread to word by doing two simple things:
1. Share your #Proud2BIndigenous photo
If you have not taken your #Proud2BIndigenous photo, take one now and post it on Facebook or Twitter tagged with #Proud2BIndigenous. Or just email it to [email protected]
Not Indigenous? To show your support, you can share a photo with a Proud Of Indigenous photo!
2. Like and Share this photo on Facebook
