We also invite you to look into events like the Indigenous Peoples’ Sunrise Gathering on Alcatraz Island on Thursday, November 24. This annual gathering centers on “giving thanks for the survival, continued resistance, and cultural resilience of Indigenous Peoples in California, the Americas, and around the world” as well as “honoring the veterans of the 1969 Alcatraz Occupation.” The event will also be broadcast live on KPFA 94.1 FM and online at www.kpfa.org from 5:30 - 8:00 a.m : bit.ly/thanksgiving_sunrise_gathering
