Get up early (and we mean nice and early) for the Indigenous Peoples’ Annual Thanksgiving Sunrise Gathering on Alcatraz Island! This yearly tradition brings in the peoples of the San Francisco Ohlone Territory for a commemoration of the 1969-71 occupation of Alcatraz by the “Indians of All Tribes” and is a one day event. You’ll find presenters on current and past Indigenous Peoples’ struggles to defend human rights, sovereignty, treaties, sacred sites and traditional lands, plus drummers and dancers. This event honors 524 years of Indigenous resistance, honoring ancestors and future generations, and a great day for everyone. The event is free, but boat tickets to Alcatraz are $14.00 for adults and free for children under 5.
