Indigenous people from different tribes celebrate the 27th annual Indigenous Peoples Day Pow Wow and Indian market at Civic Center Park in Berkeley, Calif., on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019. The first Indigenous Peoples Day started in Berkeley on October 12, 1992, to replace Columbus Day and celebrates Native American peoples who were here before Europeans arrived.

The free festivity featured the traditional Grand Entry, intertribal dancing, contest dancing, round dancing, exhibition dancing, Native American foods, arts & crafts. And “Prettiest Shawl” contest in honor of Millie Ketcheshawno, a founder of Indigenous People Day.
