Alcatraz Canoe Journey 2019
To commemorate the 1969 Occupation of Alcatraz, honor its veterans, celebrate our past and envision our future, the Bay Area Indigenous community is hosting our first-ever canoe journey. Starting at sunrise, a flotilla of Indigenous canoes from up and down the West Coast will circle Alcatraz Island, carrying forward the spirit of the Occupation for a new generation and century—showing leadership in the face of environmental degradation through the promise of Indigenous resurgence.

WHEN: Monday, October 14, 7 a.m. - 1 p.m.
