  1. Indigenous Peoples Day today at the Global Justice Center. Learn about indigenous Americans and celebrate their day. I grew up with lots of Native Hawaiians (one of my aunts was 3/4 Hawaiian, 1/4 haole (white), so I have many indigenous cousins and relatives. Here’s the schedule till 10 p.m. tonight.
