In 1992 Berkeley, California became the first city in the world to officially celebrate October 12 as Indigenous Peoples Day. This book is for people everywhere who want to know more about Indigenous Peoples Day, where it came from, what it's all about, and who want to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day in your part of the world. This is both a documentary history and an oral history, a compilation of how we did it, and a practical manual or guidebook of sorts, with some cautionary tales. Other U.S. cities and states have since joined, including Seattle, Minneapolis, Denver, Phoenix, Santa Cruz, Sebastopol, Nevada City, Madison, Richmond (CA), Vermont, and Alaska. Indigenous Peoples Day is also celebrated in numerous communities by groups, organizations, schools, tribes, and friends. Indigenous Peoples Day is a fast growing movement. In addition, South Dakota celebrates Native American Day and Hawaii now honors the Polynesian explorers. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the first Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day, and the 525th anniversary of the European invasion of the Americas, 1492-2017. "This book is a treasure, a collective project of both oral and documentary history of a quarter of a century organizing, which continues. Every activist and engaged teacher will find the Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day book indispensable." Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States. "Reading this book is like multi-tasking reviewing the past, evaluating the present and planning and plotting for the future. Let this book serve you as you move forward to building a movement of resistance. After you read it, share it with your family and friends. It could change our world!" Nina Serrano, poet, KPFA radio producer, and participant in the first Indigenous Peoples Day "This is the first authentic history of Indigenous Peoples Day, a detailed history by those who lived it, and an invaluable "how-to" handbook for other communities who want to do the same. It is a must-read for all indigenous activists." Nanette Deetz (Dakota, Cherokee) poet, writer, journalist with Bay Area News Group, Native News Online, and Tribal Business Journal.

Most people outside of the art world view art as something that is foreign to their experiences and everyday lives. A People’s Art History of the United States places art history squarely in the rough–and–tumble of politics, social struggles, and the fight for justice from the colonial era through the present day. Author and radical artist Nicolas Lampert combines historical sweep with detailed examinations of individual artists and works in a politically charged narrative that spans the conquest of the Americas, the American Revolution, slavery and abolition, western expansion, the suffragette movement and feminism, civil rights movements, environmental movements, LGBT movements, antiglobalization movements, contemporary antiwar movements, and beyond. A People’s Art History of the United States introduces us to key works of American radical art alongside dramatic retellings of the histories that inspired them. Stylishly illustrated with over two hundred images, this book is nothing less than an alternative education for anyone interested in the powerful role that art plays in our society.

In this compulsively readable social history, political scientist Stephen Pimpare vividly describes poverty from the perspective of poor and welfare-reliant Americans from the big city to the rural countryside. He focuses on how the poor have created community, secured shelter, and found food and illuminates their battles for dignity and respect. Through prodigious archival research and lucid analysis, Pimpare details the ways in which charity and aid for the poor have been inseparable, more often than not, from the scorn and disapproval of those who would help them. In the rich and often surprising historical testimonies he has collected from the poor in America, Pimpare overturns any simple conclusions about how the poor see themselves or what it feels like to be poor—and he shows clearly that the poor are all too often aware that charity comes with a price. It is that price that Pimpare eloquently questions in this book, reminding us through powerful anecdotes, some heart-wrenching and some surprisingly humorous, that poverty is not simply a moral failure.

Spring signifies change and a new beginning. A time of longer days and warmer weather, the holidays celebrated during this season reflect this sense of renewal and rebirth. The specific customs and traditions may differ among cultures, but the underlying themes - of honoring life and the triumph of good over evil - remain the same. Although hundreds of festivals occur in the spring, four in particular are widely observed: the Christian Easter celebration, the Hindu celebration of Holi, the Jewish observance of Passover, and the Persian festival of Navruz. Easter, Passover, and Other Spring Festivals discusses how these holidays encourage individuals to gather with family and friends, honor the sacrifices others have made, enjoy special foods, and exchange gifts or tokens of affection.

Despite their best intentions, people are imperfect and will inevitably make mistakes. They yearn for a chance to start over, to right wrongs, and to create a better future by improving upon the past. Several religious holidays around the world are devoted to this task. These observances allow individuals to reflect on their errors and make amends with those they have wronged. Lent, Yom Kippur, and Other Atonement Days focuses on the observation of Lent in the Christian tradition, the Jewish observance of Yom Kippur, and Vassa, the Buddhist practice also known as the Rains Retreat or Buddhist Lent. The Christian, Jewish, and Buddhist days of atonement vary greatly in beliefs and customs across different regions, but each has the ultimate goal of the practitioners bettering themselves through prayer, humility, and repentance.

Without the ability to grow and harvest crops, permanent civilizations would not have developed. Because societies were dependent on cultivating their crops for food, storage, and trade, harvesting became a sacred event in many cultures. Ancient people believed spirits lived within their crops, and went to great lengths to appease these beings. Although modern thought has evolved since that era, the significance of the harvest has hardly been lost. From the New Yam Festival in Africa to the Jewish Sukkot to Thanksgiving Day in the United States, the majority of cultures throughout the world have set aside days to celebrate times of bounty. Thanksgiving and Other Harvest Festivals looks at how the regions of Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, and North America pay homage to the harvest and everything it represents.
