In November of 2019, the El Paso Community College's Student Leadership and Campus Life Department and Ysleta del Sur Pueblo partnered up to create the Indigenous People's Celebration. This event brought different artists and representatives from various nations around the U.S.A, Mexico, and Latin America to showcase their arts, handmade crafts, and heritage. Due to COVID-19, we have transitioned our event series to a virtual setting to celebrate the Americas' original people. The University of Texas at El Paso's History Department and student organization Academic Revival of Indigenous Studies and Education (ARISE) will be joining this year's celebration by collaborating in our discussion panels. Through these collaborations, EPCC aims to celebrate diversity and inclusion in our institution and educate students and the community regarding the El Paso del Norte region's cultural richness.
We will have a discussion series starting October 12th through October 23rd from 12-1:30 p.m. To have access to these discussions, use the following button:
