Flagstaff, Arizona- The Native American Club at Flagstaff High School will be speaking at Flagstaff High School in the Multicultural Room (Room 701) at 7:30am on March 11th, 2020. Students from the indigenous nations will gather to discuss the need to rename the San Francisco Peaks to their indigenous names, to respect the people, culture and history of this land. Currently, names such as Agassiz, uplifts racist figures in history. Students will be speaking about how the current culture of Flagstaff which uplifts colonizers causes indigenous feel unwelcome welcome on their own land. Please join us to hear from the indigenous students themselves.
