Beacon Hill organizes event honoring Indigenous People’s day, protesting cannon monument

October 11, 2020

At 6 pm on Oct. 11, Decatur community members will fill the Decatur Square, wearing masks, to celebrate Indigenous People’s day through a cultural education event and protest organized by Beacon Hill Black Alliance for Human Rights. The community will hear music, poetry and stories by people of color, part of Beacon Hill’s artistic approach. The Square is home to a cannon monument commemorating the genocide of the Indigenous Muscogee Creek people in the 1836 “Indian War.” Protesting this is a focal point of the event.
