Honoring this nation’s indigenous people is a great way to show our appreciation for the way Native culture has shaped the very foundations of this country and continued to help the nation grow into what it is today.
(PRWEB) August 30, 2016
Indigenous Peoples Day is celebrated the second Monday of October and commemorates the sacrifices and contributions the Native American people have made for the country. First beginning in 1992 in Berkeley, California, the idea sprang forth after a group convinced city council to honor the Native community with a day of solidarity.
An article published by USAToday during last year’s celebration included a list of various cities that have already embraced Indigenous Peoples Day: Albuquerque, New Mexico; Anadarko, Oklahoma; Portland, Oregon; St. Paul, Minnesota; and Olympia, Washington. These states, in particular, share a rich history with Native American culture and have been influenced by the styles and art of indigenous peoples since they began. With each passing year, more cities seem to flock to the idea of celebrating the culture that influences their region so heavily.
To celebrate these great tribes across the United States, NativeAmericanJewelry.com has announced a 10% off sale, sitewide, to honor the cultures and states that are taking part in the relatively new holiday. Steven Onida, the official spokesman for NativeAmericanJewelry.com, said, “Honoring this nation’s indigenous people is a great way to show our appreciation for the way Native culture has shaped the very foundations of this country and continued to help the nation grow into what it is today.”
NativeAmericanJewelry.com’s reason for the sale is to spread awareness of Native American traditions and heritage, in light of the holiday that continues to gain popularity with each passing year. Onida went on to mention that “It’s not too often that Native culture is celebrated in such a widespread manner. This holiday gives their history and culture a new sense of rebirth and allows people from around the world to experience the great contributions indigenous peoples have made over the centuries.”
NativeAmericanJewelry.com has always provided art and jewelry from Native artisans so the holiday means something special to Onida’s team and they are looking forward to more people embracing the holiday as well as Native American culture as a whole.
