On Monday, October 10, 2022, Curry College hosted its inaugural Indigenous Peoples’ Day Celebration on a crisp fall day at Westhaver Park. The Turtle Island Singers group performed song and dance throughout the event, while members of the Mohawk Tribe, Cherokee Tribe, Massachusetts Tribe, Croatan Tribe, and Blackfoot Tribe administered Indigenous prayer and meaningful messages to the audience.
