Indigenous Peoples Day




Bristol honors Indigenous Peoples Day with Fall Programs across all four campuses.

Turtle Island, as North America is known to many Native peoples, is home to many persevering, thriving, Indigenous peoples. Please join us in celebration of their resilience. We welcome all members of the college community to attend these free events and learn from Indigenous artists from near and far.
